Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation Presents Finding Our Mothers & Fathers, The Art Of Jewish Genealogy

Received the following invitation from the Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation:
ROOSEVELT ISLAND JEWISH CONGREGATION
Presents:

FINDING OUR MOTHERS AND FATHERS THE ART OF JEWISH GENEALOGY

Sunday, May 16th, 2010 at 5 p.m.

Rivercross Community Room, 531 Main Street
The two great myths of Jewish family research are “They destroyed the records” and “I don’t remember anything.”

More and more birth, marriage and death certificates from Europe are turning up.

“Finding Our Mothers and Fathers” is a presentation in learning how to:
  • Trace your roots & how to start
  • Where to look & what you already know
  • What kinds of records yield the best information
  • How to make use of the Internet and computer software
  • How family history can be a spiritual exercise
Steven Kushner, who has spent nearly twenty years tracing his family’s roots, will be your guide. Bring your questions and materials which we will discuss and learn more about your family!

Rabbi Steven Kushner is the spiritual leader of Temple Ner Tamid in Bloomfield, NJ, where he has led the congregation as their rabbi for 30 years.

A mesmerizing historian and storyteller by avocation, Rabbi Kushner also loves to study Torah.

Suggested Donation $15.00 person, $25.00 per couple
