My Attic, Your Story

Many Jewish families are descendants of the 2.4 million Eastern European émigrés who came here from 1880-1920.

Every immigrant’s tale is unique, yet they are all the same.

You are invited to bring a photo and/or an object from your own family.

After services, everyone will have an opportunity to tell a story:

Why is this a keepsake? What does this mean to you? Consider your family’s past, treasure the things they brought and give thanks for all they passed on to you.
