HIAS@130 Book Launch -- Palo Alto, CA

Celebrate HIAS' 130th Anniversary & join us for the festivities to launch HIAS' new book

HIAS@130: 1+30, the Best of myStory

The stories in this book represent one of the great migrations in HIAS’ history: the resettlement of hundreds of thousands of Jews from the former Soviet Union to become part of the North American Jewish community.

In this book, you will find 30 stories (plus one poem) that were posted on myStory. These selections demonstrate humor, poignancy, realism, and dreams, seen through the lens of those who—for the sake of their own families and future generations—left everything behind to begin anew in freedom and hope.

The book launch for HIAS@130: 1+30, the Best of myStory will be held on Sunday, November 4th, 2 - 4 p.m. at:

JCC of Palo Alto
3921 Fabian Way
Palo Alto, CA 94303

The program will feature readings from the book by Bay Area residents Irena Smith, Eugenia Budman, and Jessica Babchin and a musical interlude.

Admission is free (suggested $18 contribution)
