About the Presentation

In 1951, during the heart of the McCarthy era, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were tried for conspiracy to commit espionage by Jewish prosecutors, sentenced for committing treason by a Jewish judge, and executed two years later just minutes before Shabbat for giving “the bomb” to the Soviet Union. The period was a difficult one not just for the Rosenbergs, but for American Jews in general. In other words, “It wasn’t good for the Jews.” What was the Jewish response to the Rosenberg case in the 1950s and beyond? Was the response appropriate? Why does the case and the response still matter today?
