Dumfries’ Rugman’s Hall is hosting a special event on Sunday for this year’s European Days of Jewish Culture.
Led by the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, it invites Jewish and non-Jewish residents of all ages and walks of life, to get together and recall fond family memories and share stories of their ancestry as part of the event from 2pm to 5pm.
History enthusiast and award-winning author of several novels, essays and short stories, Ellen Galford, will be reading excerpts from her works and will weave in her own personal family stories – bringing to life the rich heritage of Jewish culture through spoken word.
Families are invited to bring along old photographs and following a break, where SCoJeC will be serving a delicious kosher buffet, Ellen will encourage the audience to participate in an optional story-sharing workshop.
The event is free but donations will be appreciated to cover costs. For more iformation see www.scojec.org/jstories2.html, or contacting Joanne on 077245 49817.
