Jewish Roots in Ukraine: Context and Connection

I suspect this seminar will interest many readers of this newsletter:

Sunday, April 3, 12-4:30 PM eastern (virtual) 

Does the invasion of Ukraine have you thinking about your Jewish roots there? Are you wondering how to learn the specifics of your family’s Jewish Ukrainian story? Are you hoping to better understand your own identity as a way of connecting more meaningfully to the current situation?

In this one-day, four-part workshop, we aim to show you how to reconstruct your family’s history in Ukraine and interpret it within the larger context of Ukraine’s history. Although the workshop is designed for newer researchers, there will be content for people with all levels of genealogy experience, taught by leading Jewish genealogists.

100% of all proceeds will benefit the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and Razom for Ukraine, two leading non-profits providing extensive, on-the-ground support to Ukrainians affected by the current humanitarian crisis. Donations are tax-deductible where allowed by law.
