The Family: A Journey into the Heart of the Twentieth Century

David Laskin

Community Partner:  Jewish Genealogical Society of Broward County

 Tuesday, January 13   |   7:30 p.m.

Location:  David Posnack Jewish Community Center

Members:  $10  |   Community $12

The Family unfolds as a sweeping, moving epic that traces David Laskin’s family roots and spans the history of the three greatest upheavals that affected Jews in the twentieth century: immigration, two world wars, and the founding of Israel. At the book’s heart is the story of three extraordinary women: Sonia, the pioneer farmer in the Promised Land; Ida, the New York tycoon and founder of the iconic American brand Maidenform®; and Doba, the mother who remained in Lithuania and endured the Holocaust. Although the story is of one family, this masterpiece of narrative nonfiction is also a universally appealing account of the enduring love between parents and children, of faith and wartime and of innovation and astounding resilience.

In a cluttered room in an abandoned coat factory in lower Manhattan, a group of musicians comes together each week to make music. Some are old, some are young, all have come late to music or come back to it after a long absence. This is the Late Starters Orchestra--the bona fide amateur string orchestra where Ari Goldman pursues his lifelong dream of playing the cello.
