Hello, my name is Herb Siegel and I'm the coordinator of the Jewish Genealogy Special Interest Group. Phil Goldsmith is our Program Chair. We meet the first Monday of the month from 10:00 a.m. until noon in the MacArthur Room of the Eisenhower Recreation Center, 3560 Buena Vista Blvd. There are no meetings in July and August. If you have a question about this SIG, send me an email with your question and I will respond as quickly as I can. You can contact me directly at 352-751-2385  
The Jewish Genealogy brings together Villagers interested in exploring their Jewish roots, Ashkenazic and Sephardic, both here and in their ancestral country.
Each meeting will have a theme, sometimes a guest speaker, but all will have time for informal networking, help from our genealogy mavens, and learning from each other. Who knows, we might even have a nosh!
You must be a member of The Villages Genealogical Society to participate in our meetings.
