The Ticonderoga Historical Society is set to present a free program, “Adirondack Jews – Community and Contribution,” at 7 pm on Thursday, November 29 at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle in Ticonderoga.
The Adirondacks are rich with accomplishments and contributions by individuals of Jewish heritage. This program will look at people such as Louis Marshall, an attorney and conservationist and his son Bob Marshall, a founder of the Adirondack 46ers and The Wilderness Society.
The program is free to the public. Reservations are not necessary and refreshments will include a latke bar, the traditional Jewish potato pancake, served with an array of toppings.
For more information, call (518) 585-7868 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
