Welcome to Jewish Journeys

      About         Honoring Rabbi Arnie             Complete Interviews



Jewish Journeys is an oral history collection sponsored by Congregation Shir Tikvah.  Jewish Journeys focuses on how we develop and understand our Jewish identity.

When do you first remember being Jewish? How did family experiences of the Holocaust affect your Jewish identity? Why did you decide to convert to Judaism? These are the kinds of questions interviewers ask.

This developing collection supports the goal of learning about religious identity. The objective is to provide a better understanding of the challenges and choices that Jews make in their lives.

Each interview is accessed via audio file.  All interviews follow the guidelines of the Oral History Association. All interviews have consent forms giving permission to make the interview public and available through the Congregation Shir Tikvah website.
