His research has taken him throughout the United States, Eastern Europe and the Middle-East, visiting the towns where his ancestors lived.  He has published seven books about his family history as well as others pertaining to genealogy. 

At Noon, one hour prior to the meeting, Dave Slater and Robert Weinberg will be available to accommodate members and guests wishing to utilize the genealogical resources in The Bremen’s library.

    This exhibition weaves together America’s favorite pastime, baseball, and its role in creating a national identity. Through films, footage, photographs, and a database of American Jewish ballplayers, Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American explores how baseball historically played a crucial role in understanding, and sometimes challenging, what it means to be American.

  • Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of Terezin : Vedem Underground

    The exhibition examines the historic, cultural, and artistic legacy of VEDEM, a literary magazine written by courageous Jewish boys imprisoned at Terezin, a concentration camp and ghetto in German-occupied Czechoslovakia. The magazine was the only underground publication to be regularly produced by Nazi prisoners.
