In January and February, two small groups of adults who grew up Jewish in Las Vegas gathered to discuss their memories of what it was like to be young and Jewish here. As with other projects of the Oral History Research Center, it is fun and insightful to hear the reminiscences of the group participants. They often spark a recollection from what another shares.
As a community partner with UNLV University Libraries, Vegas PBS filmed both panels. The hope is that in the future some of this will be included in a documentary based on our research from this project. Links to the edited versions of the two panels are here for your viewing pleasure.
