On May 16, 2019 from 6:30-8:30pm The West End House Museum will host Jewish Heritage Honoree night, an annual event in May during Jewish Heritage Month.
The event honors Jewish heritage, one of the three larger groups of the 23 ethnicity’s that made up the pre-urban renewal West End population. This year The West End Museum will honor two important people who have contributed to preserving the history and culture of the West End and the Jewish American history of the neighborhood; Henry Barr and Alan L. Gropman. Both individuals were active participants in the neighborhood and the organizations of the West End, including the West End House and its boys and girls camp. They epitomize, in the words of Board Member and former West Ender Paul Senecal, “commitment of service to the greater community,” and are thus, “examples for generations to come, so people will always remember the West End was anything but a slum, but was instead a community of remarkable people.”
The event is FREE and open to the public, refreshments will be served. More information can be found here.
