Gesher Galicia SIG Luncheon Talk at the IAJGS 2019 in Cleveland

Gesher Galicia would like to invite all those planning to attend the
conference in Cleveland to our luncheon, which will be held on
Wednesday, July 31st at 12:15-1:30 in the Hope A Ballroom (Session
Code 1506).

We are preparing an exciting program for you. Dr. Steven Turner will
present his talk entitled, "Traveling Through the Heart of Galicia: A
Galitzianer's Journey."

Dr. Turner traveled before and after last year's IAJGS conference in
Warsaw. He started his journey in Western Galicia and then after the
conference led a group of descendants >from Nadworna under the
guidance of Alex Denisenko through Eastern Galicia. In this segment,
the group spent an unforgettable Shabbat with Rabbi Moyshe
Kolesnik and his congregation in Ivano-Frankivsk (formerly
Stanislawow) before heading to Nadvirna where the town was all
decked out to welcome the group and a monument to the victims of
the Shoah was dedicated. He finished his trip with a stay in Lviv and
a side trip to Rohatyn.

Trust us, you will not want to miss this exciting presentation. As this
is a luncheon, you need to purchase tickets which can be included
as part of your mandatory meal voucher package. You can do this
now on the conference registration page. Please realize that space
is limited and you do not want to be closed out.

We look forward to seeing you then.
