The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County presents WHAT’S YOUR STORY? It is a live community storytelling event to be presented on Sunday, April 7, 2019, at 2 PM. Admission is $8 members, $10 non-members.
Storytelling is a timeless skill through which we can find truth and understanding. At this event, coordinated by Robyn Shumer, a storytelling coach and storyteller in her own right, some of Robyn’s protégés will share stories of life changing events. Speakers include Museum volunteer Lola Kline who will reveal the story of survival of her family during the Second World War. Other speakers include Susanne Peticolas, who speaks about assisting refugees; Jackie Allgood who survived several cancer diagnoses; Elissa Torres who talks about human trafficking; and Robin Shumer’s talk of overcoming obstacles to become a mother.
The style of these talks is reminiscent of TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talks which focus on “ideas worth sharing,” and The Moth stories on varied themes, heard on PBS radio. Each presenter has been coached in developing an intriguing and meaningful tale.
This program is made possible in part by the Monmouth County Historical Commission through funding from the New Jersey Historical Commission of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
