Announcing a New 10-Part Webinar Series I Am Presenting for Children of Holocaust Survivors and Their Families

Presentation Date: 08/05/20
Location: Zoom

More info

I am very pleased and excited to announce that, beginning this week, I will be presenting a series of 10 webinars for children of Holocaust survivors and their family members. This webinar series is a partnership between Jewish Federations of North America and the NOW for Holocaust Survivors at MorseLife Health System.

For the webinar series, I will give a total of ten lectures, each of which will be given twice, on two different dates, to allow for broader participation. A list of the 10 topics is given below. Each of my presentations will be followed by an open interactive discussion with the audience, moderated by Dr. Jenni Frumer.

I will present the first webinar in the series this week, on Wednesday August 5th at 2 pm EDT.  The webinars are free of charge, but advanced registration is required since space is limited. More information, including how to register can be found by clicking on the image below. It will be my great honor to ‘meet’ you at the webinars.

    There is a problem for those living in Israel it starts at 5 am which is a bit early any solution?

    • Irit Felsen, Ph.D. says

      We purposely tried to choose some different times of the day and evening, to try accommodate as many people as we could. Many of the sessions start at 2 pm EDT, which is 9 pm in Israel.

  2. Jeanette Neumann Berstein says

    Dear Irit,
    I am sorry to say that those of us that work during the day are unable to register for the last two webinars. I understand the situation with people living in different time zones. Both sessions are on Tuesdays at 2 pm. So sorry to miss them.
    Thank you,

    • Irit Felsen, Ph.D. says

      Dear Jeanette,
      I was not the one choosing those dates, it had to do with some constrictions that the funding for the program placed. I will speak with the organizers and see if anything can be added on, at a different time.
      Are the evening sessions ok with you?
      In the worst case, of course there will be the recordings which will be made available after the end of the series.
      Thank you very much for letting me know, and for expressing your interest in my presentations.
      All the best,

  3. Hi Irit,
    I have joined/ listened to a few of your recent webinars (timebound responsibilities permitting) and thought I had registered for the one on siblings tonight Sept 13th… probably one of the most important issues for me. But apparently I didn’t as there is no email informing me of any zoom ID to log on with. My oversight. Disappointed. I’m hoping I can view this presentation when the videos are released… even if I’m not registered. (?)
    Your presentations always move me. Thank you.

      Hi Ida,
      Sorry you missed it. Yes, it will be recorded and you will have access to it later. There will also be another live discussion on the same topic on Dec. 20. I also tried to email you to congratulate you on your mother’s recent birthday!
