Adele Rebell Memorial Scholar-in-Residence Weekend
April 27, 2018, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
475 Grove Street
Ridgewood, NJ 07450
Writer, teacher, scholar and public speaker, Patricia Klindienst will share her insights about the immigrant experience, specifically Eastern European Jewish genealogy with “No One Remembers Alone: Memory, History, Genealogy.” The presentations will be drawn from her traveling exhibit and her book, “The man with No Story,” about Baron Maurice de Hirsch, one of Europe’s riches men, to whom millions of American Jews owe a debt of gratitude, yet for whom there is no scholarly biography and little shared memory. We’ll find out why this matters today.
Evening service is at 6:30 p.m.; Ms. Klindienst will address the congregation during a community dinner immediately after. Dinner is $25 per person; RVSP for dinner to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 20.
