Announcement: JGS of Greater Miami

Posted by Joan Parker
Hello Genners,
We are delighted that Daniel Shoer-Roth, a metro reporter and columnist for El Nuevo Herald (whose work also appears in the English-language Miami Herald), will be the guest speaker at the JGS of Greater Miami meeting on Sunday, September 13.
Shoer-Roth grew up in Venezuela. He was close to and spent a lot of time with his grandfather, but he never knew much about the life of his ancestors in Poland before and during World War II. As is the case with many of that generation, Elias Roth didn't talk much about it.
In his quest to learn more, Daniel traveled to Poland and did extensive genealogical research, starting in the records area of the Nowy Sacz city hall, talking with an 88-year-old one-time resident and finally visiting the
Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw.
He told his story in a July 19 article in the Miami Herald (and, in Spanish, in El Nuevo Herald). On September 13, he'll talk more about his genealogical  quest and will expand on the original story.
Meeting Details:
Date: Sunday September 13, 2009 
Time: 10:00am 
Location: Greater Miami Jewish Federation 4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL
Phone: (305)-576-4000 for directions
Note: There is free secure parking on site and light refreshments will be served. ((Have ID with you).

Guests are always welcome!
 
Wishing all a "L. Shona Tova"
