You’ve heard from the Jewish wives and mothers behind the local textile industry. Now hear from the male members of the Jewish community who built successful textile production businesses and made their living in the Greater Lehigh Valley. Muhlenberg Professors Gail Eisenberg and Susan Clemens return to share even more of the oral history they’ve collected. Many local community members will be featured in video interviews.
