The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will meet on Sunday, April 26, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the
Mid-Island Y-JCC in Plainview.
The speaker will be Avraham Groll and he will discuss “How Did Jews Get to Europe?”
This presentation will focus on early Jewish settlement in Spain, Germany, France and Italy, using maps, pictures, and documents to explore why Jews chose (or were forced) to live in these countries, where they settled, and under what conditions they lived. In addition, there will be discussion about the migration patterns of Jews in even earlier periods, including the division of Israel into two kingdoms, the beginnings of the Jewish Diaspora, the destruction of the Second Temple in the year 70 CE, and the transfer of the center of Jewish life to Babylon.
