A story from the Archives of the American Jewish Historical Society

Stepping into a bullfighting ring in Mexico for the first time in 1923, Sidney Franklin launched a decades-long career as the worlds first Jewish matador. Secretly gay, celebrated and befriended by the likes of Ernest Hemingway and starring alongside Paulette Goddard and Eddie Cantor, El Torero de la Torah traveled a long way from his upbringing as the fifth of nine children of Russian-born, Orthodox Jewish parents in Brooklyn. Rachel Miller, Director of Archive and Library Services at the Center for Jewish History, brings Franklins fascinating story Out of the Box.
