“The Family Store & More: Exploring Some History of Asheville’s Jewish Community”
Did you know that Asheville’s downtown was home to 450 Jewish businesses between 1880-1990? Join Sharon Fahrer, Owner of History@Hand, for a walk through the history of Jewish Asheville, seeing how the Jewish community has contributed to the landscape of western North Carolina. This event will include a pre-recorded video tour, followed by a live Q&A with Sharon Fahrer and Marty Gillan, the filmmaker.
History@Hand has been collecting oral histories and researching local history for almost 20 years. Its mission is to preserve the past so we can all learn from and apply its lessons to the present in order to shape the future. Sharon enjoys bringing history to the streets in order to make it more accessible.
