Presented by Michael Feldberg, Ph.D.

From the Hays-Touro family in the 1770s, to Filene's and Stop and Shop in the 20th century, to today's fourth- and fifth-generation Jewish family enterprises, Boston and its environs have been home to notable multi-generational Jewish family businesses. Michael Feldberg, Ph.D., Executive Director of the George Washington Institute for Religious Freedom, shares his research into notable family businesses in Greater Boston and explores the role that Jewish values and tradition may have played in the inter-generational transfer of significant Boston-area companies.
