Coauthors Caryn Alter and Steve Cohen, special guest speakers at our Personal Giving Thank-You Brunch, with their book What’s in a Name: A Young Person’s Jewish Genealogy Workbook.

Personal Giving Campaign co-chairs Dorothy Cohen and Anne Gorman have arranged for a fascinating program for our Personal Giving Thank-You Brunch on Sunday, May 3, at 10 a.m., at a private home in Morristown.

Caryn Alter and coauthor Steve Cohen will present a program on “Jewish Genealogy,” based on their book, titled What’s in a Name: A Young Person’s Jewish Genealogy Workbook. Both are members of Beth El Synagogue in East Windsor and founding members of the Mercer County Jewish Genealogy Society.

Caryn started doing research on her family tree, which includes relatives from Ukraine, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Israel, and the United States, when she was in college. Steve serves as a board member of the Midwest Jewish Studies Association. His research on his family goes back nearly 250 years, and includes over 3,900 family members from Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, the United States, Canada, and Israel.
