Brooklyn Heights Synagogue oral histories
ABOUT THIS COLLECTION
This interview project was a collaboration between Brooklyn Heights Synagogue (Randi Jaffe, Rabbi Serge Lippe) and the Brooklyn Historical Society (Deborah Schwartz, Sady Sullivan) with help from William Coleman, a member of the Synagogue as well as the Brooklyn Historical Society’s Board of Trustees.
This collection includes eight oral histories collected during 2010 as a joint project between Brooklyn Heights Synagogue and Brooklyn Historical Society on the occasion of the Synagogue’s 50th anniversary. Ten members of the Synagogue were interviewed during the project. During the interviews the members discuss their lives before and after joining the Synagogue.
