New York's first festival "Mishpacha: a celebration of genealogy, heritage and immigration" will take place on Sunday, May 21 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The edition told in more detail Time-out.

"Mishpacha", which means "family" in Hebrew, will be dedicated to Jewish culture. Visitors can expect lectures on genealogy, Jewish heritage panels, cooking demonstrations, live music, and other family-friendly activities.

And speaking of family, attendees can connect with some new relatives thanks to genealogists who can help with family history research.
