RABBI, I WANT A GOOD FUNERAL: JEWS AND CRIME IN AMERICA
May 10 • RSVP HERE
Organized crime in the United States is both a drain on the national economy and a continually fascinating subject of popular culture. Rarely highlighted but ever-present, organized crime in Jewish society is surrounded by conflicts of money, power, and faith. Rabbi Lance J. Sussman, PhD, and his colleague Joan Myerson Shrager, MEd, will investigate the complicated history of the Jewish people and their illegal acts throughout US history.
