In case you missed our informative program with Warren Grover and Steve Arnold, here is a link to it.
Linda Kass, author of A Ritchie Boy, a moving and memorable novel in stories—inspired by her own father’s life—will give a fascinating presentation for our Section about her book on Tuesday, April 26, at 7 p.m., via Zoom. In her talk, titled “A Ritchie Boy: One Young (Jewish) Immigrant’s Journey to America . . . and Back to Europe to Help Us Win World War II,” Linda will share the little-known story of the Ritchie Boys, many of them Jewish German-speaking immigrants, who worked in US Army Intelligence and helped the Allies win the Second World War.
In Andrea Grover’s fascinating program about the Jews of Italy, she explained that Jews originally came to Rome during the time of the Second Temple for business purposes. Even the Maccabees came to forge trade agreements.
