WEST ORANGE, NJ — Spearheaded by the Jewish Historical Society of New Jersey, in conjunction with Daughters of Israel, students from West Orange High School conducted oral histories on the lives of residents at Daughters. The year-long project was part of the students’ ninth-grade world history honors class taught by Doug Drabik.

A final culminating event took place at Daughters of Israel on May 31, in which the oral histories were displayed on beautifully-designed poster boards depicting the lives of the residents.
