The Rocky Mountain American Religion Seminar will host Rachel Gross on November 1, 2018 at the University of Utah. She will deliver a lecture on Genealology and American Jewish Religion. 

Rachel B. Gross is the John and Marcia Goldman Professor of American Jewish Studies in the Department of Jewish Studies at San Francisco State University. She is a scholar of religious studies whose work focuses on the lives, spaces, and objects of twentieth-century and contemporary American Jews. She is currently working on a manuscript, Feeling Jewish: Longing for the Immigrant Past and American Jewish Religion, which examines the religious nature of contemporary American Jewish nostalgia, including studies of Jewish genealogy, historic synagogues, children’s books and dolls, and the Jewish deli revival.
