Sophie Caplan receives a certificate of appreciation from Rieke Nash for her long association with AJGS.
AJGS founding member, past president and life member Sophie Caplan passed away peacefully on Saturday January 20, 2018. Sophie was a towering figure in Australian Jewish genealogy and many of our members have fond memories of her efforts in building our society into the vibrant organisation it is today.
We would love for you to share your memories of Sophie in the comment section below. We will pass these on to Sophie’s family.

New look, new editor, same bear!! Kosher Koala has had a facelift but we hope you’ll find the same fascinating features, interesting interviews and non-stop news, views, tips and tricks to guide you along your genealogical journey.
In this issue… We say farewell to outgoing editor Robyn Dryen (don’t worry, she’s still President!!), welcome new editor Dani Haski, Sunny Gold reviews Peter Nash’s memoir Escape from Berlin: A refugee flees anti-Semitism and the Holocaust of WWII to Shanghai and then Australia and we explore a fascinating collection of stories about cemeteries. We have updates on the 2018 AIJGS conference in Poland, a new column, Sledgehammer, for people to share brick wall breakthroughs and information on special events and workshops for 2018.
We love our members contributing stories to Kosher Koala. If you have any stories you’d like to share email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy the issue!
