The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

Eva’s Centropa Ancestry Project

Posted in Uncategorized by Juliet on April 21, 2014

Eva’s b’nai mitzvah class at Temple Adat Shalom’s Mosad Shalom religious school is pioneering a new type of project using Centropa.

The kids choose a relative from their own family and also choose a person whose stories and photos and recorded on the Centropa site. Then they find some theme that speaks to them, whether it’s similarities, differences, or some overarching theme such as “love of family,” “loss,” etc. to connect the two stories in a multimedia presentation.

Eva chose her namesake, my great grandma Eva (whose married name was Eva Grossman just like our Eva.) Here is her finished project, a Prezi. Click on the arrows at the bottom of the screen to advance each slide. Make sure to turn up your sound to hear her narration. Prezi works best with Google Chrome or Internet Explorer and does NOT work well with Mozilla Firefox.
