“Trailblazer: Connecticut Jewish Woman Making History” goes online

A new online version of our 2019 exhibition profiling 12 extraordinary Connecticut Jewish women is now available. It can be found on the website of the Jewish Historical Society of Connecticut (www.jhsct.org) under Online Exhibitions.  

The “Trailblazer” exhibition, which opened at the Mandell JCC in fall 2019 and moved to the University of Connecticut’s Thomas J. Dodd Center, highlights the lives of Jewish women from Connecticut who achieved remarkable things in business, education, entertainment, health care, fine art, journalism, and Jewish life. These women include: business leader Beatrice Fox Auerbach, entertainer Sophie Tucker, artist Anni Albers, Judge Ellen Ash Peters, Yiddish writer Miriam Karpilove, Our Bodies, Ourselves author Esther Rome, and Hartford educator Annie Fisher, among others.
