Adult Education Zoom Presentation: “My Grandfather, Bennie Kava and His Remarkable Escape from the Czar's Army”

Wednesday, March 20, 2024 10 Adar II 5784

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMZoom

Please join us on Zoom as Pamela Haft, Bennie’s granddaughter and a Riverdale Temple congregant, will read from her memoir.

“The essence of my grandfather’s amazing story is not just that he emigrated to the United States, but that he had been kidnapped from his shtetl at the age of 14 by Cossacks. He had been conscripted into the Czar’s Imperial Army for a term of 18–20 years, which was not uncommon for Jewish boys in the 19th century.”

At the end of the presentation, we encourage attendees to share their own family stories with the group.
