Florida: Meet the Rivlins, October 28

Are you a Rivlin? Do you know about the family's 1980 reunion attended by more than 2,500 extended family members, and that another event is being planned?

If you're looking for Rivlins and live in South Florida, the Jewish Genealogical Scoiety of Broward County's next meeting is for you.

Dr. Jeffrey Shoulson will screen a documentary film about the 1980 Rivlin Family Reunion in Jerusalem. Associate professor of English and Judaic studies at the University of Miami, his presentation raises interesting questions about the value and purpose of genealogical research.

The free meeting will begin at 1pm Sunday, October 28, at the Soref Jewish Community Center in Plantation.
