Join us for our monthly Kabbalat Shabbat service and buffet dinner as we  welcome author Hanna Perlstein Marcus to discuss her moving memoir,  Sidonia's Thread: The Secrets of a Mother and Daughter Sewing a New  Life in America.

When Hanna and her mother came to Massachusetts, they knew no one in America  except each other. Determined to craft a life of pride, self-reliance and  perseverance, Sidonia taught Hanna to “stand up straight” in fashion and in  life. Sidonia's Thread is an exploration of their life together, even  as Sidonia guarded her personal life from her daughter.  But as Hanna uncovers  her mother's closely-kept secrets, her surprising discoveries inspire a revised  view of her life with her mother, replacing her conflicting emotions with true  reverence.

Hanna was born in Bergen Belsen, Germany as a displaced person after World  War II. Assigned to immigrate to Springfield, Massachusetts in 1949, along with  her mother Sidonia, she resided in Springfield until after her graduation from  the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at age  twenty.

A 10 dollar donation is suggested for this event.  Please register online or contact Jessica Antoline, Program Manager, at (617)  523-2324 or email info@vilnashul.org.

We hope to see you there!
