Greeetings to All,
Long journeys - long stories briefly describes the Jewish Historical Society of Greater New Haven. In light of this description, the Society is celebrating its 40th Anniversary of its birth in 1976. This Society has accumulated vast amounts of photos, oral histories, books, films, and other vintage pieces of information relating to the Jewish heritage, culture, education, and Jewish values of in New Haven for the past 40 years.
There has been many a program relating to their heritage. Come March 27th, Joshua Sandman, PhD will be speaking at Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel at 10:00am. He will be speaking on Israel and the Middle East Direction.
Then the Society has been extremely active in the "Ethnic New Haven Historic Neighborhood Tours" Project . Where the first Historic Neighborhood Tour will include Dixwell Ave, Wooster Square Area, and Downtown New Haven. And on March13 the group will kick-off this Neighborhood Tours Project at 2:00pm with the "Ethic History of New Haven: Pre 1630 through 2010 and Beyond" exhibit at the Ethnic Heritage Center at 270 Fitch Street on the SCSU Campus. The exhibit is wonderful!!! - it is a must see.
We must bestow many, many kudos to this Society for their untiring work in keeping their heritage alive for many generations to come and in co-joining with other groups as well.
