NCJW Salon: What is in a Name

April 20, 7:30 pm

Jewish Names: What Does Your Name Say About You?

  • Who were you named after and does your personality reflect that person? What expectations come from having the name of a loved one?
  • Do you have a Jewish sounding last name? Are you treated in a certain way because of our last names?
  • Did your family’s name get changed at Ellis Island or in a concentration camp? Has that impacted you?

Join us for a lively discussion about our names, our children’s names and the meaning behind those names. We’ll explore the origins of our names, generational differences in names and how we name our children.
