Yearly, in conjunction with International Jewish Genealogy Month, IGRA holds its “Heshvan Event”. In addition to a virtual seminar day with lectures (three in Hebrew and three in English) we take time out to honor our many volunteers.

As a volunteer organization each person helping, even in small ways, is important to our success. At this event we particularly mention those who have given generously of their time and two will receive our Mathilde Tagger Prize of Recognition For Volunteering giving them membership in IGRA for the coming year and recognition on our website.

The Heshvan Event this year will be on November 8, 2020 from 10:50 am until 18:00 (Israel time). Our theme this year is “The Hidden Child in the Holocaust”. The event is virtual, free and there is one registration for the entire day allowing you to stay with us for the whole day or to come and go with the same link. After registration you will receive your individual entry code – which will also be sent to you again the day before the event.
