Arthur Finkle, chair of the Trenton Jewish Historical Society, will recount the history of the Russian Jewish community in the Trent House neighborhood in the late 1800s and early 1900s. While doing archival research for the society, Mr. Finkle, whose roots in Trenton reach back three generations, realized there was no fully documented work on the city’s Jewish history — so he wrote one. The book that grew out of his studies, Trenton’s Jews: Beginning, Adaptation and Achieving the American Dream, was published in 2016 by Hadassa Word Press. Mr. Finkle will describe his research and share images and stories of these Trent House neighbors.
