This year, area students from three schools, Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, Bolton Street Synagogue and Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School embarked on a journey into the past; an exploration of family heritage, and a project that goes beyond the usual family tree.  This journey connects students to their personal stories, to their family stories and to the greater story of the Jewish People.

 

 

These students are not alone in the adventure –other students and teachers from Israel and around the Jewish world have also been on their own family explorations and are also participating in My Family Story, a project from Beit Hatfutsot’s International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies in Tel Aviv.

 

Come see the personal expression and creativity of these students at the My Family Story Exhibit   that will be on display at the JMM from Tuesday, March 14th through Sunday, March 19th.

Blumacrankie

 

We are fortunate to live in a community where many Holocaust survivors have made it their mission to share their stories with both adult and student audiences.  We are privileged to welcome two survivors to JMM while Remembering Auschwitz is on view. Join us to hear the personal testimonies of these extraordinary women.

 

 

Bluma Shapiro is a Polish Holocaust survivor whose Holocaust experiences included confinement with her family in a ghetto, slave labor and deportation to several concentration and death camps including Auschwitz.

 

Ms. Shapiro’s testimony will be illuminated by Maura Roth-Gormley who will use a Crankie, an old storytelling form originally designed to be a portable form of entertainment used by traveling artists, to help share her story.

 

Join us on Sunday, May 7th at 1:00pm for the second in our Stories of Survial Series with Golda Kalib.
