THE PILGRIMS AND THE MAYFLOWER (and a whole lot more!)


Presenter: Joel Farkas, Historian
Tuesday November 23, 2021 @ 1:30pm / In-Person at the JCC OR via Zoom

How much do you really know about why we celebrate Thanksgiving? 

For example what did Henry VIII and his wives have to do with the pilgrims? Join Historian Joel Farkas on a voyage from The Ancient Greeks to The Pilgrims and The Mayflower and beyond. Joel Farkas is a volunteer docent and tour guide for the National Park Service at Washington's Headquarters (the Ford Mansion) in Morristown, New Jersey.  He was the recipient of the National Park Service Centennial Volunteer Challenge Award. He is a collector of original historical autographs.

This program is co-sponsored by The Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey.
