Generations of the Jewish Community on the Central Coast
In Hebrew L'dor V'dor means "from generation to generation" and since the 1850s generations of Jewish migrants have made their way to San Luis Obispo County from all over the world. The Blochmans, Cerfs, Goldtrees, Greens, and others came from as far away as Russia to make their homes on the Central Coast, creating the community we recognize today. This exhibit will highlight the stories of constructing the People's Wharf in Avila, the High Holiday services lead from the Grand Mason's building, and the longest-serving Mayor of San Luis Obispo's work to keep anti-semitism out in the 1920s.
