The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community series welcomes historian, teacher and author David Rutstein as he presents "Four Unknown Jewish Men and How They Changed America and the World."

Four men, in their individual ways, were responsible for Czarist Russia losing a war; for Russia, an ally of Britain and France, withdrawing from the First World War; for American recognition of the new state of Israel; for a special tribute from President George Washington to the Jewish people that is still with us today; and for saving thousands of Jewish lives from the Holocaust.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
