Commemorating 280 Years of Jews in Georgia 

When: Wed., July 10, 6 p.m. 2013
Price: $15 for non-members
On July 11, 1733, Georgia's first Jewish settlers arrived in Savannah. A number of these Jewish families worked together to form Congregation Mickve Israel in Savannah, the third oldest synagogue in America. A descendant of one of these families, freelance journalist Carolyn Wildes Cunningham, will discuss why Gen. Oglethorpe allowed the Jewish settlers to stay. Immediately following this presentation, you are invited to participate in a Q&A session about this topic or your genealogy journey during a "Beginning Genealogy" class. This event is co-sponsored by the William Breman Jewish Museum and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia.
