The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community program welcomes Stephanie Abrams, executive producer & host of the nationally syndicated radio travel shows "Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!" and "Travelers411."

Abrams will speak about her visit to the location of Paper Clips in Tennessee. When she saw the film Paper Clips, she knew that she had to know more,  She invited the school's principal, Linda Hooper, to be a guest on each of her radio shows, heard in Berkshire County on WBRK101.7fm and WSBS 860am. 

Abrams made a promise that "one day" she would visit the Whitwell Middle School Children's Holocaust Memorial and Resource Library in Whitwell, TN.  That "day" came in November, 2015.  She brings a wealth of information and photos of the emotional experience and her unique connection to this Christian rural Tennessee community

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
