Plans are complete for the 2021 SJHS annual conference, hosted by the JHSSC the weekend of October 22–24. We will gather together for the first time since 2019 at the Historic Francis Marion Hotel in beautiful Charleston, SC.
In addition to walking tours of the sites of Jewish Charleston, conference-goers will gather for Shabbat dinner and services at iconic Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim. The weekend will feature a full slate of panels under the theme of “Expanding the Archive(s) of Southern Jewish History,” chosen to celebrate 25 years of the Jewish Heritage Collection at the College of Charleston’s Special Collections and its curator, Dale Rosengarten. Topics will range widely, including forays into southern Jewish history and creative arts, collecting Kentucky Jewish history, and refugee politics.
Deadline to register: October 15, 2021
