Opening reception for "Hartford-Israel Connections Over 125 Years," an exhibition created by the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford to explore the ways that Jewish communities in the Hartford area have connected with the Jewish homeland -– as both dream and reality -– from 1898 to the present. Jewish people in our area have celebrated Israel (or the idea of Israel), visited the country, raised funds in good times and bad, helped to defend Israel militarily, and even moved to Israel to contribute directly to its society. These connections and others have helped shape Jewish life in Hartford and in Israel alike.
