The Breman Museum With Rabbi Lydia Medwin:  

The Legacy Of The Hebrew Orphans' Home:  Educating The Jewish 

South Since 1876

Please join us for an informative morning that is not to be missed.  This exhibition highlights the oldest Georgia-based Jewish non-profit from inception to present through photography and stories.  The story of the Jewish Education Loan Fund (JELF) spans three centuries.  Starting as an orphanage in the late nineteenth century, it grew to become an important social service agency in the twentieth century.  Today, the loans granted by JELF enjure that Jewish students have the potential to fulfill their educational goals.  This exhibition tells a powerful story of how philanthropy and a deep commitment to education can transform the community and leave a profound legacy.  We will get to experience this tour with our own Janet Dortch, who will act as our docent during our time there.
