Hartford’s Jewish Historical Society celebrates 40 years on May 6

WEST HARTFORD – Friends of the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford had plans to celebrate the organization’s 40th anniversary on Oct. 30, 2011 with a gala dinner filled with fine food, great entertainment and good memories. Then the snow came…and the power went…taking with it the Society’s special event. Not to be undone by the weather, the folks at the Historical Society moved their celebration back to spring. Now, on Sunday, May 6 the organization’s supporters will gather at Beth El Temple in West Hartford for a special evening celebrating the vision of a small group of individuals who, forty years ago, understood the importance of collecting and preserving the history and contributions of Hartford’s Jewish community. The group had the foresight to realize that what is not saved may be lost forever, and that led to the creation of the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford. The May 6 dinner will begin with a cocktail hour at 5 p.m. to be followed by dinner at 6 p.m., and a program recognizing the contributions of the organization’s past presidents, leaders and lifelong volunteers: Gloria Bein, David Klau and Lillian Marlow. Entertainment will be provided by Magevet, Yale University’s Jewish acapella group. Guests who had already responded for the originally scheduled October program are asked to reconfirm. Space is still available for anyone interested in attending. For more information or to reconfirm, contact Bea Brodie at 860 727-6171 or bbrodie@jewishhartford.org
