April 2020 General Meeting

Our general meeting on April 23 will take place at 1:00 pm at the Hadassah office on Old Court Road, preceded by a board meeting (open to all) at noon. We will show the documentary film, The Jewish Journey: America. The film explores what it meant to be part of a tight-knit Jewish community and make the heartbreaking choice to leave family behind, whether for economic opportunity or to escape persecution. Incredible archival photographs and footage bring to life the personal stories of first to fourth generation Americans who took a leap of faith and made it to America however they could.

Many of our Brandeis current and past members lived through the war years, some in Europe and some here in America, with different life stories. Following the movie we will hear from members and compare and contrast the varying experiences.
