About James Nadel

I am a fourth year PhD student in the History Department of Columbia University, where I focus on Jewish and Russian History. I have studied Eastern European Jewry for the better part of a decade, especially through Yiddish language texts. My dissertation examines the lives and careers of Jewish stockbrokers throughout the Russian Empire, from Kiev to Odessa to St. Petersburg to far-off Baku.

James Benjamin Nadel is a Ph.D. student in the Department of History at Columbia University.
