  • The Tuskegee Airmen and the Jewish People: How our Past Inspires the Future Sponsored by Beth Shalom v'Emeth Reform Temple ( B'ShERT) FREE and on ZOOM on June 26 @ 4 pm. Register at https://bshertairmen.eventbrite.com for link. This program will bring to life the challenges, accomplishments, and heroism of the Tuskegee Airmen and their lasting impact on society today. Rabbi Heidi Hoover of B’SHERT will introduce our panelists. We will be joined by Lt. Herbert Thorpe, an airman who did not fight the Nazis in the skies but fought hard against discrimination on the ground, and Patt Terrelongue and Kimberly LeBlanc, both of whom are descendants of fighter pilot airmen and found inspiration in the lives of their elders. It was through the driving force of discrimination that the airmen related to the Jewish people because they understood what it was like to feel less than human. And a surprising, a little-known fact about the airmen is that they went against the orders of President Roosevelt and took part in the bombing of railroad bridges and railroad yards in Budapest and on Nazi industrial sites in the Auschwitz region during the war. The panelists will be engaged in conversation by supervising attorney, Cynthia Groomes Katz of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS). The story of our Tuskegee Airmen began in WWII with discrimination but gradually built a foundation for generations of families inspired to do good because they stood on the shoulders of giants.

  • Flatbush Junction is a very safe neighborhood, however there are still pockets of Flatbush that are dangerous. Considering it's only a few trains stops from Downtown Brooklyn, is very affordable to live here in comparison to other parts of Brooklyn such as Borough Hall, Cobble Hill, Williamsburg, Greenpoint. Flatbush is in Kings County. Living in Flatbush offers residents a dense urban feel and most residents rent their homes. In Flatbush there are a lot of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and parks. Many families and young professionals live in Flatbush and residents tend to be liberal. The public schools in Flatbush are above average.

  • • There was almost an elevated railroad line in Ditmas Park In 1903, regular tracks ran along the street. "The railroad was privately owned, and the city told the railroad ‘You have to get these tracks off the street.' They were going to build an elevated railroad. Can you imagine an elevated railroad behind the houses on East 16 and Marlborough?" The wealthy residents of Ditmas Park approached one of the chief engineers of the railroad, Charles Potts, and protested the building of an elevated line. "He approached his supervisor and the only other option was to put the tracks 18 feet down uncovered, and that's the way it's been ever since”. You can thank those same residents for the Beverley Road station. The railroad was going to eliminate the Beverley Road station because the Beverley and Cortelyou Road stations are only one block apart, in fact they're the closest stations in the NYC subway system.

  • • If you go to Erasmus and don’t even know how to make tea … You have huge chances of becoming a pro in cooking pasta and frozen pizza. • Many babies are coming from Erasmus experiences. We can call them Erasmus babies. There is a strong possibility to fall in love and remain together after Erasmus. Only the fact that you have lived such an experience together can form a lifetime connection. • A group of Erasmus students has managed to get a couple “divorce” before they even got properly married? Yes…you heard me. I think it’s time for that short story I promised. In this way, you will understand what I’m saying.

  • There are many historic homes in the borough of Brooklyn and one of the oldest can be found right inside the park. The Lefferts Homestead, located at 452 Flatbush Ave, was originally built in the farming village of Flatbush. Today, the quaint Dutch style home sits in Prospect Park, six blocks from its original location. Built in 1783 after a previous structure was burnt down by American soldiers in the Revolution, the building was home to the Lefferts family, one of the wealthiest and most influential families in Brooklyn at the time. In order to save the home from threats of new development, the John Leffert’s estate offered it to the city of New York in 1917 with the promise it be moved onto city owned property. The relocation ensured the home would be preserved for generations to come. The home now operates at the Lefferts Historic House museum where visitors can try their hand at 18th-century activities like candle making and butter churning while exploring the beautiful gardens and historic artifacts inside the house.
