Dan Oren, MD
The Wedding Photo

Drawing from his new book, The Wedding Photo, B'nai Jacob member Dan Oren shares discoveries from his extended family that bring genealogy to life. A visit with his wife's cousin unearths a breathtaking photograph of a 1926 Berlin wedding and leads to finding their unimaginable post-wedding lives. An archivist in Prague discovers a secret uncle with a celebrity-filled life. A New York Times article about Philip Roth dramatically uncovers a 90-year-old man's hidden Jewish identity. If you haven't started your own genealogical queries yet, after this talk you will!
