The Rabbi Marcus Breger Memorial Lecture

The 2020 Breger Lecture will provide a bi-regional snapshot of the Jewish experience between Tijuana-San Diego and El Paso-Ciudad Juárez, between the years 1911 and 1929. Greenberg will explore how Jewish immigration, commerce and community formation in the border region was affected by the Mexican Revolution, US prohibition, a new national Quota system in the US, and the creation of US Border Patrol.
