Lost Worlds Found

Join Pittsburgh-based photographer David Aschkenas as he tells stories behind a selection of his work focusing on photographs of the grand synagogues and Jewish cemeteries of Europe and his ongoing documentation of Pittsburgh.

Aschkenas’ work will be complemented by students from the University of Pittsburgh as they present new research about Western Pennsylvania Jewish history. Their work stems from Dr. Rachel Kranson’s “Jews and the City” course, which follows the migration of Eastern European Jews to urban centers around the world, including Pittsburgh.

This program is free and open to the public but does not include museum admission. Please register online.

This program’s lecture begins at 10:30 a.m.,
