Two Cities, One Story: Rabbi Jacob Rothschild

Summer Speaker Series

Presented by The Breman Museum in partnership with the Savannah Jewish Federation, Savannah Jewish Educational Alliance, and the Southern Jewish Historical Society


Jeremy Katz, Senior Director of Archives at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, and Eric Lidji, Director of the Rauh Jewish Archives at the Heinz History Center, will discuss the life of Rabbi Jacob Rothschild through their archival collections. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Rabbi Rothschild moved to Atlanta shortly after World War II to become the new spiritual leader of the city’s oldest and largest Jewish congregation, The Temple. He soon became a civil rights activist and agent of change in the Jewish and general communities of Atlanta.
