The next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (and surrounding areas) will focus on Jews in the Western states.
Western States Jewish History Journal (WSJHJ) editor/publisher Gladys Sturman will speak on "How the Jews Won the West: How the documentation of Western Jewish history began and why this is such a hot topic today."
The academic quarterly is in its 40th year and documents the early life of Jewish pioneers, the contributions Jews have made to settlement of the West and their impact on cultural, political and economic life.
Sturman holds a Jewish history degree from the University of Judaism and was the school's 2006 outstanding alumna. A multi-award winner and author, she has been an active participant in the Los Angeles Jewish Community for more than 49 years.
The meeting begins at 2pm Sunday, November 11, at Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand Oaks, CA. There is no charge.
