Our July program will be held live at the Church of the Redeemer, 5700 Forbes Avenue, Squirrel Hill, on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. Until further notice, proof of vaccination and masks will be required out of consideration for our population of members, some of whom may be at risk. We ask that you do not attend if you are not vaccinated. Attendance will be limited to the first 40 who register in order to maintain spaced seating. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Register for July meeting” in the subject line. Make sure to list the names of all those attending. You will be informed of whether space is available by response to your request.
We will also broadcast the program on Zoom. All SHHS members will be sent an email with the Zoom link before the day of the program. Members will receive the link automatically without having to request it, and others may request it using the link on our homepage.

“The Family Clubs of Squirrel Hill”
Eric Lidji, director of the Rauh Jewish History Program & Archives at the Senator John Heinz History Center, has been researching the family clubs that were a defining and unique feature of the Ashkenazi Jewish experience in the United States in the 20th century. These clubs had members, officers, dues, meetings, minutes, newsletters, reunions, and programs. What made them different from any other club was their membership: everyone was related.
