The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington is teaming up with two of these organizations to present events:
- May 16: history and genealogical exercise, The Blumenthals of the Upper-Lower Peninsula of Michigan with guest speaker Dr. Janette Silverman, in partnership with the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington at the Library of Congress
- May 31: book discussion, We Called Him Rabbi Abraham: Lincoln and American Jewry, a Documentary History by Dr. Gary Zola, in conversation with Erin Carlson Mast at the National Archives
This seems to be a trend, highlighting Lincoln books during Jewish American Heritage Month; wonder if next year we will move on to a new president? 😛
On Sunday at 1 pm, the Society is rolling out its new walking tour of H Street! Hopefully you’ve already obtained your spot if you’re interested, otherwise the link has information about being put on the waiting list.
Please feel free to add any comments about other JAHM events happening in the area. Check out my past coverage of Jewish American Heritage Month under the “Annual Events” tab.
