The Helix Project: Sharing the Story of Jewish Life in Europe
Nov 18, 2014 @ 4:30 am - 5:30 am
Join Rob Adler Peckerar, Executive Director of Yiddishkayt, a Yiddish cultural and educational center in Los Angeles, and Helix Project Instructor, Mindl Cohen, and alumni of the Helix Project to learn about the only educational summer program that brings the 1000 year history of Jews in Eastern Europe to life.
The presentation will include photographs and short films from the last three trips organized by Helix to Poland, Belarus, and Lithuania, and stories and experiences of participants in the program, as well as a conversation about how Jewish history in Europe is remebered.
The event welcomes both students considering applying to Helix and community members who wish to learn about this innovative program.
