120th Anniversary of the Jewish Labor Bund

October 22, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

bundJoin us on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 1PM for our co-sponsored event celebrating the 120th anniversary of the founding of the Jewish Labor Bund!

Our Executive Director, Ann Toback, will be presenting as part of a panel of activists and progressives speaking about this pivotal social movement and its impact on our activism and Jewish culture today. The Bund played a pivotal role in the founding of the Workmen’s Circle and the creation of our activist voice, and today we proudly continue our commitment to our founding Bundist values as we continue the work begun over a hundred years ago: building a better and more beautiful world for all.

We hope to see many of our members in attendance as we commemorate and celebrate this inspirational movement!
