Back Row (left to right): Inna Mink, Linda Frank
Front Row (left to right): Gertrude and Rabbi Ted Alexander

All of us who filled the KOH Library to hear these delightful and informative panelists, enjoyed hearing their stories and the history of Jews who lived for several years in China. We heard how they happened to end up in China, what their lives were like before and after that experience, and what they are doing today. Very inspiring!

May thanks to Frank and Janie Gumpert for hosting a wonderful lunch for our panelists before our event.

John Rothmann Lecture

What an inspiring, knowledgeable, charismatic, entertaining speaker! The KOH Library was filled to capacity. Mr. Rothmann was very impressed with our library collection, which was great to hear. A well deserved standing ovation followed his lecture.
