Los Altos Hills, CA

Topic: Yad Vashem Names Recovery Project
Speaker: Jessica Minturn

Jessica Minturn will discuss the Names Recovery Project, in which San
Francisco Jewish Family and Children's Services partners with the Yad
Vashem Holocaust Museum in Israel. This vital effort to recover the
names of all 6 million Jews who died in the Shoah is growing ever more
urgent as time passes. About 4 million names are currently listed,
only two thirds of the estimated number of victims. To preserve the
past for future generations is a goal of SFBAJGS. Come learn how you
can help!

Jessica coordinates the Holocaust Survivors Speakers Bureau and the
Oral History Project at JFCS. Jessica has worked for the Holocaust
Center of Northern California and the Bureau of Jewish Education and
was a 2010 Birthright Israel NEXT Fellow.

Meetings are free and anyone interested is welcome to attend. Light
refreshments will be served.
