Sylvia and Irving Margolis Lecture on the Jewish Experience in the American South 2021
Deep South Home: The Jewish Community of Selma, Alabama
With only four active members living in their city, it would be easy to overlook the only synagogue in Selma, Alabama. Nestled just steps away from the historic bridge in downtown Selma, the synagogue is more than a building – it is a legacy. Over the last five years, ethnographer Dr. Amy Milligan has worked alongside of the remaining members of the congregation, capturing their stories, learning their history, and building towards a future for the congregation and their important historic building.
