Kosher Koala has landed!

It’s been a while since our last issue of Kosher Koala but it’s finally here… and worth the wait.

Society President, Robyn Dryen, gives her ‘State of the Society’ report, outlining the various successes and challenges faced by AJGS last year. Di Edelman outlines a fascinating family story in The WACHMANs – three Lithuanian Jewish families – obviously connected but how? Can you help solve this family mystery? Evelyn Frybort shares her experience of touring China, with a distinctly Jewish flavour; and Dianne Johnstone recounts the moving experience of “hearing the voice” of her 3rd great grandfather, Barnet Lazer, when she had the chance to view original letters written over a century ago.

This edition is the final issue under the editorship Robyn Dryen, and is jam packed with fascinating stories, useful information and handy links to help you on your genealogical journey. Just click on the cover image above to read the latest edition.
