Seattle Jewish Theater Company at the 36th IAJGS Conference #usa

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

This summer's 36th conference of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies in Seattle will feature a performance of the
highly acclaimed play >from Door to Door. The heart-warming, bittersweet
comedy will be staged by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company, a local
theater group devoted to Jewish-themed plays.

Written by award-winning playwright James Sherman and directed by SJTC
artistic director Art Feinglass, >from Door to Door follows the lives of
three generations of a family of Jewish women, >from impoverished
immigrant to successful American. The performance will take place on
the evening of August 9 in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel in
downtown Seattle, where the conference will run >from August 7 to 12.

As director Art Feinglass notes, "The play takes its title >from the
Hebrew song L'dor V'dor, '>from generation to generation.' It examines
what it means to grow up Jewish and to love those closest to, and most
like, ourselves." An audience discussion with the director and cast will
follow the performance.

During the conference, SJTC will also present Jewish History Live in
which actors will portray Jewish immigrants who came to Seattle from
areas as disparate as Turkey, Rhodes, and Russia in the early 1900s, and
Germany and Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. They will engage conference
attendees in conversation, tell their personal stories and share their
dreams as new immigrants to America.

This summer's IAJGS conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival
put together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights include the opening night keynote address by
Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington Sephardic Studies
Program, and a resource room accessing a vast array of databases. And,
as at previous conferences, remote streaming of selected programs will
be available through LIVE!

Re: Belarus Minsk/Grodno geography - help #belarus

Steve Stein asked for help finding 4 towns (Losza, Studyonka,
Krinitzoy, Shkoritz") around Mir, Belarus
I found at least one, and would like to share my methodology.

First I went to our community pages and found the latitude/longitude
for Mir: 5327/2628.
Then i went to the radius search on our JewishGen gazetteer at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocRad.asp

I put in the coordinates for Mir and asked for towns within 20 miles
of it, beginning with the letter S.
Skorichi, Skorychi was 6 miles NNW of Mir. Likely a candidate.

Re: Does anyone have access to the Lichtenstein Book #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Barbara Algaze
 

Dear Dave:

If you do not get any response regarding the Lichtenstein Book, you can go
to your local public library and request an "Inter Library Loan."
They will do a search of ALL the various libraries in their system and if
they find it anywhere, it will be shipped to your local library for you.
The charge is minimal (usually less than $10.00) and you get to peruse the
book in your local library. Sometimes they will even let you check it out.

I hope this is helpful.

is on p.92? Or does anyone know where I can find this book?
