The Jews of the Titanic by Eli Moskowitz

Special Event: Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 2 pm

Eli Moskowitz’s book, now translated into English, focuses on the lives and deaths of the Jewish passengers who sailed on the Titanic. It covers various Jewish aspects of the voyage and of the sinking. Aspects, such as keeping kosher, the Agunotdilemma and Jewish burial. The book outlines the life story of the passengers and the effect the disaster made on world Jewry. This book is the result of a long research on the subject, including an attempt to compose a unique and complete list of all the Jews who sailed on the Titanic, and identifying many of them who were previously unknown.

Eli’s presentation is co-sponsored by our colleagues at the Atlantic Jewish Council. Copies of his book will be available at the event and Eli will be happy to autograph them.
