This lecture will tell the story of Kiryas Joel, NY, an enclave community of Satmar Hasidic Jews that became a legally recognized municipality in suburban New York. How did this come about, and what does it tell us about America? David Myers will share his lively narrative and images, drawn from fifteen years of research he and his wife, Professor Nomi Stolzenberg, have conducted for their forthcoming book American Shtetl.
