The first WTA Immigration Fair was a great success. The night began with beautiful chavruta learning and continued with middle school “docents” impressing all in attendance with their remarkable presentations of their family history. The goal of the immigration project was for each student to connect, in writing and through oral presentation, with his/her personal family Jewish heritage. Students choose an artifact that represented their unique family story including religious items, documents, photographs, personal items, oral histories and written memoirs. The students interviewed family members and did research to understand the history of their artifact and the story behind the item. All of their work culminated when the students presented their artifact and the story behind it to their parents, grandparents and siblings.
