Did You Know They Had Jewish Roots? Stories of Ten Famous People With Jewish Roots

March 21 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

$30 – $35

Join us as we learn about the interesting lives of five women and five men with Jewish roots, some deeper than others, who achieved fame over the years in America. Fiorella LaGuardia, Lauren Bacall, Paul Newman, Hedy Lamar, Harrison Ford, Madeleine Albright, Leonard Nimoy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Elvis Presley, and Mae West all had Jewish roots! Highlights from their early lives, careers, spouses, family, challenges, and paths to fame will enrich their stories. You may be surprised by what you learn! There will be time for questions and any additions you wish to share. A PowerPoint presentation will enhance this fascinating program. This event is also available virtually.
