Please join me in welcoming IAJGS’s newest member, JGS Maryland!
JGS Maryland is a revitalized JGS after seven years of inactivity. The JGS held its first meeting- an organizational meeting - on August 18 at the Jewish Museum of Maryland where they had over 30 in attendance. The new Society will hold its first regular meeting on September 29. The new officers are:
Lara Diamond and Dick Goldman Co-Presidents Laya Bittman Vice-President Joe Nathanson Secretary, Robin Thomas is Treasurer
During the recent IAJGS Conference in Boston IAJGS hosted a breakfast for unaffiliated attendees who lived at least 50 miles from an existing member society to encourage JGS formation. Lara, Dick and Joe attended the breakfast and took action immediately! Dick is a past president of JGS Maryland from over seven years ago.
