Group Description

There is a human desire to connect with history in a physical way, one that also compels us to build monuments and memorials to mark history. These physical markers, like written history, reflect society's interpretation of historical events and commemorate the stories considered important by the people who built them. It is interesting to think about the sorts of events, and the sorts of people, memorialized by monuments, plaques, statues, signs and buildings. Which stories are recognized through a physical marker, and how?

It is important to make sure that the stories of Jewish women are written into the larger story of Jewish history in America, but it is also important to think about the presence of Jewish women in physical history. What sites and monuments are important to Jewish American history, and how many of them tell the stories of Jewish women?

What sites, memorials, and monuments do you know of that recognize Jewish women or important events in Jewish women's history? Add your photos to the group pool!
