The Jewish Genealogical and Archival Society of Greater Philadelphia meeting and program
Date:  Sunday, February 28, 2021

Time:  1:00 check in, chat, and schmooze.   Official program starts promptly at 1:30 PM EST
Guest Speaker:  Leora Tec, Founder and Director, Bridge to Poland

Topic:  What is there for Jews in modern day Poland?  An Introduction to The Neshoma Project

As we know, ninety percent of Polish Jews were murdered during World War II. It's understandable that some people, especially Jews of Polish descent, might have reservations about going to Poland, the site of such vast pain and loss. And yet, Poland is an integral part of Jewish history. 

Leora Tec has travelled all over Poland having conversations with non-Jews who, in different ways, are remembering the Jews who used to be their neighbors. Those interviewed, working to heal historical wounds, come from many different fields including: scholarship, teaching, guiding, grassroots activities, museum work and the arts.

All meetings require a membership to our society EXCEPT for March 7th! Free Beginner's workshop! See our website www.jgasgp.org for more information.
