The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW) will present “Telling Your Story, Leaving a Legacy”, taking place at B’nai Israel Congregation, in Rockville, Maryland on October 20, 2019, at 1:30 PM.
Explore the idea of preserving your own story. Historians and families used to have letters and diaries to construct their family history. In a world gone digital, how will we pass on our experiences and life lessons?
Come hear Anne Bolen, owner of an oral history recording service, explain why your story matters and how to make sure it isn’t lost. The presentation will include a fun exercise to demonstrate how to tell your story.
With over 25 years in the museum and archives field, Anne Bolen is passionate about preserving our national and community stories. Her work towards understanding the personal side of history and collecting interviews for schools and museums inspired her to found her own company, Anne B. History, which records memories and experiences for organizations, individuals, and their families.

Washington Hebrew Congregation’s Amram Scholar Series is proud to welcome Jodi Kantor.
Jodi Kantor is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for “The New York Times” and a best-selling author whose work has revealed hidden truths about power, gender, technology, politics, and culture. When she and her colleague Megan Twohey broke the story of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged sexual abuse, told in their newly-released book, “She Said,” they helped spark a movement that exposed systematic abuses across industries.
During Kantor’s program at WHC, she will take us behind the scenes of investigative journalism, revealing how she and her colleagues exposed secrets that have been hidden for decades and gave rise to women’s voices. In exploring the resonance of the Weinstein investigation, she will address several topics, including the misuse of power and position against women, how society responds to the reality many women face, what really creates social progress, and how we can navigate the #MeToo era with fairness.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
