Mark your calendar for a special event in February: as part of KBSʻs “Varieties of Jewish Experience” series, congregation member Dr. Alexander Rosenstein will discuss The Jewish Journey: From Settling in the Russian Empire to Exodus from the Soviet Union. A world-renowned orthopedic surgeon practicing here in Kona, Alex was born in Odessa when Ukraine was still part of the Soviet Union. In the 1970ʻs his family of dissident Jews emigrated to America and over the years he has maintained a keen interest in the history of his native Ukraine and the rest of the old Soviet domain. Personal experience and in-depth research led Dr. Rosenstein to add “author” to his resume, writing, so far, two history-based political thrillers: “Double-Edged Sword,” published in 2017 and “Sword of the Kremlin,” just out last year. The “Jewish Journey” talk is February 16, 3-5PM, at Kona Joeʻs Coffee Farm, 79-7346 Mamalahoa Hwy in Kealakekua. Admission is free and coffee, pastries and other light refreshments will be available for purchase.
