Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Family Story Hour & Crafts
Monday, January 21, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
The Eldridge Street Synagogue tells the story of millions of Jewish immigrants leaving home and finding hope in America. Today, in honor of MLK Day, we'll read The Great Migration: Journey to the North by Eloise Greenfield, another powerful story about saying goodbye and starting over. A craft project to follow.
