Israel: "From threads to a quilt" May 9

JFRA Israel's Ra'anana branch will host, at 7.30 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, Rachel Kreisberg-Zakarin who will present "From a few threads to a whole quilt: The story of my genealogical research into the Simon Wiesenthal family."
Kreisberg-Zakarin is the granddaughter of Simon Wiesenthal

Writes JFRA Israel's president Ingrid Rockberger: "Until about a year ago, Rachel knew very little about her grandfather's family other than the fact that he and his wife lost 89 family members in the Holocaust. Rachel's research sheds light on the Wiesenthal family roots in Galicia, those family members who immigrated to the US, those who died in the Holocaust and those who survived - to tell their stories and of those who perished.

Doors open at 7 p.m. at Beit Fisher, 5 Klausner Street, Ra'anana.
Admission for JFRA members, NIS 5; for others, NIS 20.
