The Chase Room, NJPAC

About the Event:

Light snacks, networking, and a compelling program about Newark’s Jewish Frontier: Weequahic and Its High School, the journeys from the 1930s to the 1960s, when the Weequahic neighborhood was home to 35,000 Jewish residents – including celebrated author Philip Roth. Homes built on farm lots, known as Lyons Farms, attracted the city’s upwardly mobile Jewish families. Weequahic High School still remains at the heart of the community, drawing generations of alumni for annual reunions and events.

Hosted by:

Women’s Association of NJPAC’s Cultural Legacy Committee and Newark History Society; the discussion will be led by Linda Forgosh.


Free to Members of WA, NJPAC, and Newark History Society and Free to the public with reservation
