Hosted at The Jewish Museum in New York City (1109 5th Avenue)

This panel features writers who are part of or write about the Russian American Jewish community. Each year brings a new crop of voices reflecting on Russian Jewish experience in America, and we're bring together a range of voices with the goal of provoking a discussion about what it means to be a Russian American Jew today and why Russian Jewish literature is such a stand-out in the field.
