June 25th: Rebecca Gratz -- Her Life and Her Legends, Susan Sklaroff
Susan will be talking about the way that the romantic stories about her contributed to the success of her pioneering effort in religious education, the Hebrew Sunday School Society.
Susan Sklaroff has a BA and an MA in English from the University of Pennsylvania. She worked as a science editor and writer, had a family and became a docent at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia. The Rosenbach's beautiful portrait of Rebecca Gratz, by Thomas Sully, caught her interest, and years of research ensued. Several years ago to make her findings public, she started a blog "Rebecca Gratz & 19th-Century America," and also began speaking about Rebecca to local groups.
