About The Event

Though the pandemic continues to disrupt our lives, we are pleased announce that plans are being finalized for the 2020 Fall Meeting of the GCHS. Anticipating that the COVID-19 will likely not permit us to gather in person, we will be utilizing one of the innovations to which the current crisis has forced many of us to become accustomed. On Monday, September 14, 2020 @ 7:00 PM, the Society will host its first ever webinar, entitled "The Jews of Springfield," featuring Dr. Mara W. Cohen Ioannides.  Besides serving as the current vice president of the GCHS, Cohen Ioannides is on the faculty of the MSU English Department and has been studying the Jews of the Ozarks for over twenty-five years. She is the acknowledged expert in the field, having spoken around the world on the subject.  In this presentation, Cohen Ioannides will survey the Springfield Jewish community's creation and growth. She will be acquainting webinar participants with some of the reasons members of the Jewish community came to Springfield, what they did upon their arrival, and how their synagogue developed.  The webinar will be free to the public, though advance registration will be required.
