Jewish Genealogy Workshop: Finding Your Ancestors

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This workshop is led by Rabbi Scott Kalmikoff, a genealogist from New York City who has spent the past 14 years exploring his roots, building his family tree and meeting relatives around the world.

By walking you through the steps he took to conduct his personal genealogical research, Rabbi Scott will teach you the methodology of searching for records & documents, analyzing them and using the information they contain to build your family tree. The workshop gives you an overview of online Jewish genealogical resources so you can use them from the comfort of your home.

Rabbi Scott’s hope is to excite you about genealogy and empower you to conduct the research on your own. For Rabbi Scott, genealogy isn’t just a hobby or profession. Genealogy is a wonderful journey of personal exploration and self discovery. While learning about our ancestors we learn about ourselves. While learning about our history we connect with and deepen our Jewish identities. Jewish history and our families’ stories are our story & deeply influence who we are today in ways we may never fully comprehend. Genealogical research provides us with a precious gift we can pass to the next generation, l’dor vador.

Presented by Pearl Endy Adult Education Fund.
