Growing up in Kentucky as the granddaughter of Jewish immigrants, Nora Rose Moosnick observed a surprising connection between communities of Arab and Jewish immigrants around her.  Despite cultural differences and an adversarial history, she found these groups were drawn together by shared “otherness” as they dealt with the complexities of life in a new place.  Dr. Moosnick shares the experiences of 10 Jewish and Arab women, “navigat[ing] the intersection of tradition, assimilation, and Kentucky’s cultural landscape.” 

Dr. Nora Rose Moosnick is an adjunct professor of sociology at the University of Kentucky.
