Author Talk, Everyone Has a Story: Finding Your Own Jewish Genealogy with Dan Oren
Join us on Sunday, February 11, at 9:30 AM to learn about Jewish genealogy from local author Dan Oren! This talk is in-person at the JCC of Greater New Haven, a light breakfast will be served.
The late New Haven psychiatrist Dr. Donald Cohen taught that "everyone has a story." Oren will share how you begin to explore your own story, free resources available on the Internet, specific New Haven resources, and who you can contact for help. Dan Oren, M.D., is author of The Wedding Photo, a family genealogical history, and Joining The Club: A History of Jews and Yale. He is a former program chair of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies annual conference and the president of Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland. He is co-leader of the annual JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows and JewishGen Neshama trips to Poland. He is a founder and life member of the Jewish Historical Society of Greater New Haven, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2026.
The Judaica Project series is a collaboration with the Peter C. Hereld House for Jewish Life at Quinnipiac University and is made possible by a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.
