JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGS of Illinois Nov. 24, 2013 Meeting - "West Side Jews vs. South Side Jews" #general

Walter Reed <reedupuis@...>

Mark Mandle, a 6th-Generation Chicago Jew, will present this history
of Chicago Jews, at the JGSI Monthly Program meeting at 2:00 p.m on
Sunday, Nov. 24. He will explain that although Jews have lived all
over the Chicago area, their origins in the city's West Side and
South Side neighborhoods have defined much of their current
communities. He will illuminate their accomplishments as well as
their decline and fall. Mandle has given many lectures on Chicago
Jewish history and led tours of Chicago's Jewish neighborhoods.
The JGSI meeting site will be open at 12:30 p.m. to accommodate
members and visitors who want help with genealogy before the
featured program begins. Visitors are welcome and admission is free.
Please note that (for this meeting only) the site is Temple Judea
Miszpah at 8610 Niles Center Road in Skokie IL.
