Hadassah: A tale of southern Jews and the Civil War


Gladys Paulin

An atmosphere of intrigue and adventure await all who attend the Hadassah meeting on Tuesday, April 1 at 11:30 a.m. at Congregation Ohev Shalom. A trip back in time will take those in attendance into the fascinating world of a family of southern Jews during the Civil War.

Certified genealogist and Hadassah life member Gladys Friedman Paulin will bring to life the Levy Family of Charleston, S.C., and their often notorious escapades on the side of the South during the Civil War.

Paulin is a past president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando and a former trustee of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (AIJGS). She is a regular speaker at annual conferences of the IAJGS and the National Genealogical Society (NGS) in the United States.
