In this talk and traveling exhibit, Roslyn Sholin describes what happens when she inherited a house that had been in her family for 80 years. Suggestions for the “Museum of You” will be provided.

In this multi-media event, Roslyn Sholin describes what happens when she inherited a house that had been in her family for 80 years.

What does it feel like for a granddaughter to inherit a grandparent’s home? Why do these old items matter?

When we know how old something is and what was happening in Eastern Europe or America at the time, we have context for how family history and world history are inextricably linked.

When you have a trove of materials that tell the immigrant’s journey, you have an opportunity to share this with the community. Storytelling is a cherished part of our tradition, and using objects to supplement the tale is especially enriching.

Your museum: Everyone has family artifacts and stories that need to be preserved for the next generation. What have you inherited that is meaningful? How are you going to tell your story for the next generation? We will explore options for how to create your museum.

Come see objects, eat dessert, drink tea & hear Klezmer music.
