History Cafe: Jewish Voices of the Northwest, 1880-1920

Book-It Repertory Theatre will perform a unique adaption of Jewish history in Washington State: In the Land of Rain and Salmon: Jewish Voices of the Northwest,[masked].

Working with material from the Jewish Archives at the University of Washington Special Collections Library and the book, Family of Strangers: Building a Jewish Community in Washington State, Book-It Repertory Theatre and the Washington State Jewish Historical Society present In the Land of Rain and Salmon, incorporating stories of Washington State's Jewish immigrants who came to the area during the nineteenth century through the 1920s. The performance weaves together accounts of individuals who were isolated from each other by language, different religious customs and generation, but who ultimately succeeded in developing a community that made significant civic and cultural contributions to Seattle and King County.

About History Cafe
Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the MOHAI Cafe at the Museum of History & Industry's new location in Lake Union Park for lively a discussion about history. Each cafe features a different topic, and invites history enthusiasts to come together and share what you know. Grab a cup of coffee - or glass of wine - and enjoy learning about the past!

Please note: History Cafe is a free program, but if you wish to visit the MOHAI galleries, you must pay museum admission (galleries close at 8 pm).

This event series is brought to you by MOHAI, The Seattle Public Library, and HistoryLink.org.

RSVPs: Seating at History Cafe is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your RSVP gives us an idea of how many people are coming, but does not guarantee you a seat, so we encourage you to arrive at least 15 minutes early. If an event is full on Meetup, you may still come.

Parking: After 6 pm, numerous lots near Lake Union Park offer free parking. Look for parking lots off Fairview Ave, Westlake Ave, or Valley Street, or take the South Lake Union Streetcar from downtown Seattle.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
