Jewish Genealogy Society to meet this Sunday

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will meet this Sunday, Dec. 20, from 2 – 4 p.m. at the Mid-Island Y-JCC, 45 Manetto Hill Road, in Plainview.

The topic will be “How Did Jews Get to Europe?” (Part 2) presented by Avraham Groll. Continuing the presentation he gave last April, Mr. Groll will tell us more about patterns of Jewish migration after the decline of Babylonian Jewry in the 9th and 10th centuries. He will use maps, pictures, and documents to illustrate why Jews chose (or were forced) to seek new homelands in Europe, the places they settled, and how they lived.
