BEKI Ancestors exhibit

“Ancestors,” an exhibit featuring pre-1950 photographs and artwork that portray the diverse ethnic backgrounds of members of Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel (BEKI) in New Haven will be on exhibit at the synagogue Sept. 20 to Nov. 7. The exhibit reveals fascinating photos and stories that tell of the experiences of those who helped form future generations. Approximately 40 members contributed images and stories of ancestors, some which date as far back as the 1880s. “Ancestors” will be available to view on Friday evenings, during morning services, and by appointment by calling BEKI at (203) 389-2108.

Main Photo: Rosa and David Reich, maternal great-grandparents of BEKI member Margaret Olin, in their Chicago delicatessen (c.1910s). The Reichs emigrated from Hungary c.1880.
