Spirts Alive Winter Lecture Series: India & Congress Streets – The Ethnic History of an Intersection, presented by Ted Fleischaker @ Etz Chaim Synagogue
Feb 12 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Spirts Alive Winter Lecture Series: India & Congress Streets – The Ethnic History of an Intersection, presented by Ted Fleischaker @ Etz Chaim Synagogue | Portland | Maine | United States

In the 1920s and before, many Jewish immigrants settled on Portland’s Munjoy Hill and adjoining streets. There was a Jewish community along Hampshire Street. This included a Kosher bakery, butchers, shops, and homes. Two synagogues still stand: Etz Chaim at India and Congress Streets and the building that housed Shaarey Tphiloh on Newbury Street. Fleishaker will tell us what happened to Punsky’s Drug Store, Levinsky’s Army & Navy, the bakeries, and other synagogues that dotted this area. He’ll also identify remaining historic remnants of this once robust Jewish neighborhood.

This event will be held Etz Chaim Synagogue & Maine Jewish Museum at 267 Congress Street.

Spirts Alive Winter Lecture Series: And the Sea Shall Take Them All – The Wreck of the SS Portland, presented by Herb Adams @ 7th Floor Event Room, Glickman Library

Spirts Alive Winter Lecture Series: And the Sea Shall Take Them All – The Wreck of the SS Portland, presented by Herb Adams @ 7th Floor Event Room, Glickman Library | Portland | Maine | United States

125 years ago, the wreck of the SS Portland, became the largest loss of life at sea in a single storm in New England history. Some 200 souls were lost in a storm so severe that it was known as “The Great Portland Gale.” On the weekend after Thanksgiving 1898, the sidewheel steamship carried home a cross-section of city life—immigrants, politicians, servants, businessmen, brokers, infants, and entire families—all lost in “The greatest wind that ever swallowed New England.” The city’s African American population was especially hard-hit. Adams will tell us why the ship sailed and where it was lost. His illustrated talk will feature underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) images of the wreck as it is today deep off Cape Cod, still holding its secrets.

This event will be held in person in the University of Southern Maine Glickman Library, University Events Room, 7th floor.
