The move towards restriction and the aftermath of the 1920s legislation left long shadows across the history of both the US and the Jews of the world. This day-long symposium examines the efforts exerted by American Jews to prevent, roll back, and resist immigration restriction. Speakers include Maddalena Mariani, Joel Perlman, Randy Storch, Libby Garland, Geraldine Gudefin, Heather Lee, Hasia Diner, and Carl Bon Tempo.
