TJGS Vice-president Jarrett Ross will discuss the Alliance Colony Jewish agricultural community founded in New Jersey in the 1880s. The community was settled by 43 families who fled Russian pogroms to start the first successful Jewish agricultural settlement in the US. With the aid of organizations from all over the World and the support from local populations, the community flourished and created an amazing legacy through its many descendants. This presentation will talk about the history of the Alliance colony from its founding to the modern revitalization of the land by living descendants.
Jarrett will also discuss highlights of the Roots Tech Conference.
