Seniors Forever Young Virtual Speaker Series

Join Seniors Forever Young for their fall Virtual Speaker Series. In October we will welcome historian Maddie Beihl from Strawbery Banke. Maddie will share the genealogical history of the Shapiro family, show images and primary source documents.  

The Shapiro House at Strawbery Banke was the home from 1909 to 1928 of Abraham and Sarah Shapiro, Russian Jewish immigrants, and their American-born daughter Mollie. Interpreted to 1919, the home shows how the Shapiros sought to balance their strong cultural identity with new opportunities in America. While Shapiro House is specifically about the Russian Jewish experience, it also reflects the early 20th-century multi-ethnic community at Puddle Dock, when half of its 600 residents were foreign-born.

This program is 45 - 60 minutes and includes and opportunity for Q&A.

Pre-registration is required by calling 603-627-7679 or emailing info@jewishnh.org. All programs through our Virtual Speaker Series will be held on Zoom and the link will be given with your registration.
