Congregation Emanu-El
Less than a decade after the devastating Earthquake and Fire, and a year after the opening of the Panama Canal, the City regained its place as the major metropolis of the American West. The symbol of that revival, and in some ways its engine, was the dazzling PPIE, perhaps the greatest world's fair before or since. Join us as historians of Bay Area Jewry will discuss the meaning of the PPIE and the outsized Jewish role and contribution to this celebrated time and event.
