|Venue:||Jewish Museum of Florida|
Join Florida International University for a celebration of the life and work of Israel Zangwill (1864-1926). Talks will cover the range of Zangwill's professional activities, from his fiction the Jewish ghetto, to his efforts to establish a Jewish homeland wherever one might be founds. Staged readings from Zangwill's play The Melting Pot will lead to a discussion of the issues raised by the play in 1908 and today. We look forward to sharing in this celebration with all of you.
