Star of David, Jewish star

The American Jewish Experience Lecture Series, presented by the Jewish Historical Society of Central Jersey, continues for its 20th consecutive year with a presentation by Regie Buchsbaum Roth entitled “My Grandfather’s Legacy.”

The lecture will be held at 10 a.m. Aug. 8 at Jewish Family Services, 52 Concordia Shopping Center, Monroe.

The lecture will be repeated at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 16 at the Highland Park Conservative Temple, 201 South Third Ave., Highland Park.
