Archive Fellowship for Kerstin von der Krone

Kerstin von der Krone was awarded the The Joseph and Eva R. Dave Fellowship at the The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives  in Cincinnati (OH) for the 2017–2018 academic year.  This fellowship allows her to broaden her research on nineteenth-century Jewish religious education by including American Jewish approaches to education between 1820 and 1880. Based on this new perspective, she is currently re-framing her research project under the title “Educating the ‘Modern’ Jew and the ‘Loyal’ Citizen: Re-Defining Jewish Religious Education in the Nineteenth Century.” The fellowship program at the American Jewish Archives was founded in 1977 and brings together scholars of American Jewish experience to deepen their research and engage in scholarly discussion.
