Will you be in the Sarasota FL area on Tuesday March 10th?

At 2PM, at Temple Beth Israel on Longboat Key, I will be showing a 30 minute video about Dr. Abraham Ber (known as Boris Leibovitch in Russia) Kagan, a physician, educator, social activist and revolutionary. The video was made in 2015, more than 100 years after his death in the Moscow province. It is in Russian with English subtitles.

Dr. Kagan, my grandmother's brother, was born in Zhager, (now Lithuania) in 1870, but the family moved to Riga when he was a child. He went to gymnasium in Riga and then went on to medical school at the University of Moscow, where he graduated in 1893. 

Before the video I will be showing some photos of the trip that I took to Russia last summer and other trips to Latvia and Lithuania.

Everyone is welcome. For more details see attached poster.
