Sharing stories at the Congregation Emanu-El Adult Educational Centre

An afternoon of sharing stories about growing up Jewish with painter and author Phyllis Serota

An afternoon of sharing stories about growing up Jewish with painter and author Phyllis Serota is on March 4.

“Many of us in Victoria know very little about each other’s early lives. Some of us grew up in Toronto, Calgary, New York, Israel and even Vancouver,” said Serota. “Let’s get together and learn about each other’s history.”

Serota will facilitate by reading the chapter Being Jewish on the West Side from her recent memoir entitled Painting My Life, A Memoir of Love, Art and Transformation.

The book will be available at the event on Sunday, March 4 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Congregation Emanu-El Adult Educational Centre, 1461 Blanshard St.

Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be served.
