Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting

Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia Meeting Details

Do you have documents, photographs, or family heirlooms stashed away in shoe boxes in the attic, basement, or closet? Then there is no time like the present to organize and preserve those items for future generations to learn their family heritage. Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia as our featured speaker, Jeremy Katz, Archives Director at the Breman Museum, conducts a workshop on preserving your family history. Participants are encouraged to bring items from the family collections they wish to be examined for preservation.

Participants are also encouraged to stay after the program for the opening of the Curating Your Family Story exhibition featuring art projects completed by Shearith Israel students on their family heritage.

Free for Members. Non-Members, participation in this event is included in the cost of general museum admission.

      The Righteous: A Play Reading & Discussion

      What would you do if you learned that your country was enacting a plan to annihilate an entire people? That is the gut-wrenching question faced by Eduard Schulte, a captain of German industry who was familiar with the Nazi High Command. Schulte’s identity was a closely guarded secret and his heroic act to attempt to stop the Holocaust was kept hidden for over forty years. The Righteous brings to light the remarkable and inspiring true story of Eduard Schulte.

      THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Film and Discussion

      The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Watch the film and then join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
