Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres
Dinner & Program
After 54 years, Temple Judea member Allison Kanter discovered, by taking the Ancestry. com test, that she had a blood relative. Michele Mordkoff also took the same test. She not only discovered there was a blood relative, she found out that her blood relative was her twin sister. One week after Michele and Allison discovered one another, they met in New York to be reunited after having been separated at 5 months old; they were adopted one week apart and never knew that each other existed. They will share their story and the power and strength of family, women and love.
