Learning Opportunities

NJOP (National Jewish Outreach Program) has just begun a series of webinars titled a Crash Course in Jewish History. Wednesday nights at 5:30pm Mountain time, you can join these 90 minute sessions for free, ending on July 19th. Unfortunately, the first session was last week, so sign up quickly to get the rest of the series. The first session covered from the birth of Abram until the time of King David, so essentially the Old Testament and Prophets times. The session was recorded, but we don’t know if the playback will be available. Sign up at their web site to attend the rest of the series: https://njop.org/judaism/crash-course-in-jewish-history-with-rabbi-ephraim-buchwald-on-zoom/

We also want to remind you that the FEEFHS conference (Federation of East European Family History Societies) has their conference coming up in Salt Lake City, from August 1 – 4. There will be a virtual option, if you’re going to IAJGS or are otherwise unable to attend, but in person, there will be additional classes, consultations with experts at the FamilySearch Library, social opportunities, and more. Early bird registration is still available until June 30th at their web site: https://feefhs.org/index.php/conference-2023-info

During our meeting, we also learned about a YouTube channel for Jewish history from Dr. Henry Abramson, a specialist in Jewish history. There are many videos about specific parts of Jewish history, information about Jewish holidays, and other Judaica topics.
