June 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Virtual Program Virtual Program
Program Fee: $12.00

In partnership with ReBoot

Stereotypes about Jewish physical weakness have meant that the crucial role of Jews in making American fitness culture has often been overlooked — despite the 19th century tradition of muscular Judaism established precisely to challenge these assumptions. Join historian Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, author of Fit Nation: The Gains and Pains of America’s Exercise Obsession, for an exciting talk and conversation about how and why Jews were so influential — but understudied — in shaping American fitness.

Thursday, June 6 @ 5-6:30 pm (Pacific Time), on Zoom, $12
