Join us for the upcoming free webinar series of the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) starting April 22nd. We have chosen a variety of genealogy topics for the webinars that should appeal to all levels and will help genealogists in advancing your research.
Registration is now open and is required as there are a limited number of “seats” available. If you wish to register for more than one webinar, you must do so separately. Reminders will be sent out closer to the date of each webinar.
All webinars are in English, with the exception of two webinars. They will all start at 19:00 Israel Time, 12 pm (EDT).
This series is in addition to the weekly Zoom “Show and Tell” series from IGRA which have already started to be broadcast.

    Summer Speaker Series: The First Jews in Georgia

    Ann Woolner, journalist and author, traces Georgia’s first Jews from the torture chambers of the Portuguese Inquisition through escape to London and then onto a forbidden voyage to Savannah. Unexpected and unwanted, 41 Jews landed in the infant colony 1733 in the midst of a deadly epidemic there — seemingly quelled by one of their own, a Portuguese-born doctor. His curative treatments brought respect and equal treatment for Jewish settlers. When the Revolution came, these families fought as patriots, ran supplies and helped finance the war.

    This workshop brings awareness to sea turtles, one of our endangered species. Sea turtles are the ultimate ecological lesson, showing that everything is connected. In this workshop, children, parents and siblings can enjoy honoring the sea turtle by creating a sea turtle sculpture using air dry clay, to create texture and design that can be incorporated into a 3D sea turtle seascape. The clay can be made at home with a simple recipe using flour, salt and water and the recipe will be part of the supply list included with registration for the workshop

    Studio Earth: Mother Earth Figurines

    Workshop supplies can be recycled materials and found objects, large fabric scraps, ribbon, string, and newspaper to create a Mother Earthfigurine. No sewing is required. Start with rolled up newspaper to be the support for the figure. Then add layers of materials, attaching them with string or yarn. Arms are made using more fabric and string. How Mother Earth’s clothing evolves depends on what fabrics and materials are selected. Add a scarf, a hat and a piece of found jewelry as a final embellishment. The completed Mother Earth can be a 3-D folk art work of art to enjoy at home, as a reminder to appreciate and care for our world.
