    Tuesday, June 19, 2018
    5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
    Exact location provided with RSVP
    Register Now
    Join the Washington State Jewish Historical Society and JConnect for the next History Happy Hour on June 19th with Molly FitzMorris. Molly will explain how the history of Ladino in Seattle lead to the language shift from Ladino to English among Seattle's Sephardic Jews, and how this language shift has impacted the Ladino spoken today. The talk highlights some of the most prominent features of this unique North American dialect of Ladino; some of these features can still be found in spoken Ladino, while others have all but disappeared. Though it is difficult to reverse language shift, Seattle may be in a unique position to preserve the Ladino language.

    Nordic Museum
    Register Now

    Join the Washington State Jewish Historical Society in supporting the Nordic Museum for the 23rd Annual Raoul Wallenberg Dinner, honoring the memory of the Swedish diplomat who intervened to save thousands of Jews from deportation to Nazi concentration camps.

    Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish architect and businessman, who served as Sweden's special envoy in Nazi-occupied Budapest from July to December, 1944. During that time, Wallenberg issued protective passports to Jewish persons and sheltered Jews in Swedish-territory buildings, saving tens of thousands of people from deportation to concentration camps. Wallenberg was detained by the Soviet Army in 1944, and reportedly died in a communist prison in 1947. Today, he is celebrated by countries worldwide for his courageous humanitarian efforts.
