[New Video] Great New Books in the Humanities with Hasia Diner

In case you missed the event, watch Hasia Diner, Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies and History at NYU, discuss her forthcoming book Roads Taken: The Great Jewish Migrations to the New World and the Peddlers Who Forged the Way. Diner tells the story of millions of young Jewish men whose peddling propelled a mass migration of Jewish families seeking opportunities abroad, leaving parents, wives, and sweethearts behind.
