Kirsten Fermaglich
A Rosenberg By Any Other Name: A History of Jewish Name Changing in America

Thursday, May 7, 12:30pm
Our think­ing about Jew­ish name changing tends to focus on clichés: ambitious movie stars who adopt­ed glam­orous new names or insen­si­tive Ellis Island officials who changed immi­grants’ names for them. But as Fer­maglich elegant­ly reveals, the real sto­ry is much more pro­found.
