American Jewish History Unbound #3: Levy’s Jewish Rye - Beth Wenger


Beth Wenger, the Moritz and Josephine Berg Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania, joins Judaism Unbound on the ground at the National Museum of American Jewish History. In conversation with Lex Rofeberg, she looks at a series of famously successful advertisements produced in the mid-late 20th century by Levy’s Jewish Rye. This bonus episode is part of a series of bonus episodes, recorded in partnership with the American Jewish Historical Society and the National Museum of American Jewish History.

We’ve included pictures of the advertisements that Wenger examines below, so that you can look at them as you listen to the interview.
