Share Your Voice and Your Vision: Oral Histories of the WRSSJCC

  • 13 Dec 2022
  • 12:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • White Rock South Surrey Jewish Community Centre

Registration is closed

You are invited to take part in a media presentation to be shown at our Tu B'Shevat Fundraising Gala on February 5th 2023. As our first major fundraising project following the pandemic, we will be celebrating our roots (history), our branches (what connects us) and our leaves (our future).

We will be holding interviews with community members on TUES. DEC 13 and WED. DEC 14 from 12pm-7pm, in half hour time slots. The interviewer is asking for short 5-7 mins. stories or memories that illustrate what connects you to your Judaism and the White Rock South Surrey Jewish Community Centre. We also encourage everyone who was present at the beginning of the JCC to share their personal histories, photos and memorabilia which pertain to our founding. Excerpts of these interviews will be professionally shot and edited by Yaakov Green to be shared at our Fundraising Gala. A longer version of the presentation will be submitted to the BC Jewish Museum and Archive, and this project will mark the first time voices from our outlying WRSSJCC community will be included in the archive. This representation of our outlying community in the stories of our greater Jewish community is of vital importance, and we hope you can please make time to participate.

We will have a camera and microphone setup at the WRSSJCC on Dec. 13th and 14th so please try your best to attend during your selected time slot. If you’d like to participate but absolutely can’t make any of these times, please let us know.

Thank you,

Helen
