About Linda Gibbs
Linda Gibbs has been researching Jewish Genealogy for a number of years. She will tell us about her recent trip, after years of research, to Ukraine to visit her ancestral home. Linda’s talk will answer questions touching on:
• The joy of finding living relatives
• The Endogamy Game
• Are all Ashkenazi Jews related?
• Challenges and thrills of researching Jewish Genealogy


PLUS! Jessica Hendricks Yee showcases her newest collection of jewelry, “Zahava,” at 6:30pm

Inspired by ancient wisdom, the “Zahava” collection of gold jewelry and ritual objects is crafted by hand in Tel Aviv as modern heirlooms. Each piece is designed with the intention of elevation your celebrations—a coming of age moment, a dinner together, or a just a moment in time. The collection was born out of a fascination with the symbols and rituals of our collective pasts, and the power they hold to inspire and improve our lives in the present.


The gift shop will open at 6:30pm and all Sisterhood members will receive a 10% discount!


The Sisterhood of WJC is a community of women committed to the enrichment of Jewish life by providing spiritual, educational & social programs, and by offering financial support to vital synagogue activities.
