Virtual Gombin #2: Gombin and Poland in the 1920s and 30s

Anita Greenbaum-Brush Presents: “Hope, Change and Loss; Gombin and Poland during the 20s and 30s” Anita will use historic photographs, documents and memoires to introduce us to the life of the Jewish community in Gombin during a vibrant period of cultural, religious, and economic life. This period was known as Poland’s 2nd Republic between the end of World War I and the Nazi invasion. Many of our families’ memories and stories come from this period.


Virtual Gombin #1: Virtual Tour of the Gombin Synagogue

About 50 Gombiners and friends from the U.S., U.K., Poland, Europe, and Israel participated in a ½ hour virtual tour of the iconic Gombin Synagogue; Bernie Guyer led the tour.  That Synagogue was at the center of the town’s Jewish life for more than 200 years.  Photographs, the scale model of the synagogue, and an excerpt of the virtual video tour of the Synagogue’s interior are shown; Anita Greenbaum Brush reads from her father’s memoire of Yom Kippur in Gombin.  The tour concludes with renderings of the proposed memorial plaque installation that is currently pending approval.
