JEWISH GEN WITH COMMISSIONER KEN

Connect your “dors” (generations).
Ever wonder what this Genealogy thing is all about? What is your story?

Join Congregant and Commissioner Ken Cutler as he puts on a series of short zoom classes designed to give a brief overview for seeking out your Jewish ancestry. Series will begin on October 15, 2020 on ZOOM at 7:00PM. Please contact Judy if you wish to join the classes. Here is a breakdown of the course selection:

10/15 Basics of Genealogy
11/19 Jewish Genealogy
12/10 The Holocaust and Genealogy
1/14 Other Aspects of Genealogy

Congregation Kol Tikvah recently launched a new program that allows you to “Open your Bar/Bat Mitzvah door to other ‘dors’ (generations)”. Thanks to Ken and his genealogical research, The Remember Us: The Holocaust B’nai Mitzvah Project started last year at Kol Tikvah. The program offers bar and bat mitzvah children the opportunity to connect with the memory of Holocaust victims who died before reaching the ages of 12 and 13.
