Eva's Traveling Suitcase
Coming to America – Immigration Stories, Yesterday and Today
If you could pack just one suitcase as you left Russia bound for Philadelphia in 1913, what items would you choose? Eva Baen will tell us what she brought! Via SKYPE, the actress who portrays Eva at the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, will guide us through her journey. We will use Eva’s Traveling Suitcase to explore the challenges that faced Jewish immigrants a century ago. This suitcase is also special because Eva Baen is Rabbi Kravitz’s Bubbie! We will also learn about immigration today and the challenges of coming to a new homeland in 2017.
Join us as we learn together, share stories and discuss immigration today and how to honor the journey begun in the Book of Ruth.
Please bring a dairy dessert to share.
Evening will conclude with Maariv Service.
Eva Baen stands at center, between her parents.
