Blue Jeans: A San Francisco Story

July 9th @ 10:00am - 11:15am

In 1873, dry goods salesman and Jewish immigrant Levi Strauss obtained a U.S. patent for the process of putting rivets in men’s work pants for the very first time creating what we know today as the blue jean, a staple of iconic American style.

Learn the history of Jewish San Francisco as told through this local phenomenon that impacted culture on a global scale.  This program is based on this Contemporary Jewish Museum exhibit: https://thecjm.org/learn_resources/522.
