JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGSGW Celebrates 36th Anniversary in Rockville, MD #general
Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 1 PM.
Location: B'nai Israel Congregation, Gudalsky Hall, 6301 Montrose Rd,
Rockville, MD 20852
The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW) will celebrate
its 36th Anniversary with a gala Luncheon on Sunday, November 13, 2016.
Started with only a dozen founding members and swelled to hundreds, we shall
recognize our founders, and particularly honor the enormous contributions to
the development of organized Jewish genealogy made by our own Sallyann Amdur
Sack-Pikus, who chaired the first Jewish genealogy conference in Washington
just a year later and the first international Jewish genealogy conference in
Jerusalem three years after that - and didn't stopped there.
Hear renowned speaker Arthur Kurzweil, author of the ground-breaking "From
Generation to Generation," the informative book which started so many of us
down the intoxicating path to discover our roots.
So, enjoy fabulous kosher food, and celebrate 36 years of JGSGW's
outstanding support for Jewish genealogy: make your reservation **now**
(deadline is October 28, 2016)! More details at
