Lunch and Learn: The Forgotten History of Barre’s Jewish Community
May 16, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
With deep ties to Burlington and Montpelier, Barre’s Jewish families nevertheless forged their own singular identity in a diverse environment of Yankees, Italians, French Canadians, Scots, Spanish, Syrians and other vibrant ethnic groups. Dr. (and Rabbi) Carol Harris-Shapiro (who is also a part-time resident of Barre) will share some of the unique stories of Barre’s Jewish residents and the life of their community, based on information she has gathered from interviews, books and articles, and genealogical research.
About OZ’s Lunch and Learns
We gather at Ohavi Zedek’s Social Hall as an in-person event from noon to 1:15pm. (We are not using Zoom unless conditions change.)
A delicious lunch will be offered. Monthly speakers will cover a wide range of topics. Seating will be available for those who want to stay masked and not join us for lunch. Our goal is for everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy the talks.
The program is free, with an option to make a donation to support our programming.
