Kehiliah: Turning Your Memories into Treasured Stories

“We are all storytellers. We all live in a network of stories.
There isn’t a stronger connection between people than storytelling.”

―Jimmy Neil Smith  

Join us when award winning storyteller, author, and teaching artist Judy Sima teaches us how to unleash our natural born storytelling skills. She will gently guide participants through a series of exercises to help bring cherished memories to life and capture family or personal stories before they disappear. Beginning with a list of memory joggers and an imaginary “snapshot,” participants work with partners to create stories to share with family, grandkids or as a springboard for writing their memoirs.  Be sure to bring with you to our Zoom program:
