FLPL's Wandering Jews of New Jersey

Tuesday, July 20, 2021

Join the Fort Lee Public Library on Tuesday, July 20 at 7pm for the "Wandering Jews of New Jersey." Come back in time with Oscar Israelowitz and see the first Jewish settlements in the urban centers of Newark, Paterson, New Brunswick, Jersey City, and Trenton. See the old Bamberger’s Department Store, Beth Israel Hospital, and the old Newark Synagogues--B’Nai Jeshurun, B’Nai Abraham, and Oheb Shalom. See the waterfalls of Paterson and its Jewish-owned silk factories. Explore the Jewish farming communities of Alliance, Vineland, and Woodbine (the first all-Jewish town in the world). Everyone who ran Woodbine, including the mayor, police chief, fire chief, and town council, were all Jewish and spoke Yiddish. Visit the old vacation spots of Lakewood and Atlantic City. It’ll bring back wonderful memories. Please register for this event at
