A student laments that his Hebrew school education included nothing about the history and culture of the Jews of Eastern Europe.
Earlier this year, the Forverts asked readers to submit anecdotes and photos of their favorite heirlooms.
Showing them your favorite heirlooms not only teaches them where they come from but also helps increase their self-esteem.
The Forverts has begun preparing a special issue dedicated to the cherished family heirlooms of our readers and website visitors.
When we asked readers to tell us about their family heirlooms, we were overwhelmed with poignant and moving entries. Here are some of the stories.
Whether it’s a silver kiddush cup, a siddur smuggled through the Holocaust or a bat mitzvah bracelet, each family has its heirlooms. We want to hear about yours.
