Jewish Heritage Museum Presents “History Comes Alive with William Agress as Albert Einstein”

Bill Agress is a long-standing reenactor of Albert Einstein, among others.  For more than 30 years he has been re-enacting various Revolutionary characters, and as an actor, has appeared in plays and musicals at the Bucks County Playhouse, the Trenton War Memorial, and McCarter Theatre. He has appeared as George Washington on the Amazing Race TV show and as Albert Einstein in videos for AT&T and Cognizant. Mr. Agress is a tireless advocate for the recognition of the importance of the state of New Jersey in the context of the American Revolution.  This program will focus on Professor Einstein’s life and accomplishments with an emphasis on his religious beliefs, Israel, Zionism, Hebrew University, Brandeis University and the Jewish students of Princeton University.

This program is made possible in part by the Monmouth County Historical Commission through funding from the New Jersey Historical Commission of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
