Congrats to Sarina Roffe on her appointment to the board of directors for the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. Elections took place at a recent conference held in Warsaw, Poland.

With more than 30 years of experience as a genealogist, former member of the JewishGen Board of Governors, and editor of Dorot for the Jewish Genealogical Society of New York, among many other organizations, she is well suited for her new position.

Borough daughter Sarina is the author of “Branching Out From Sepharad, a History of Sephardic Jews from Spain to Aleppo to the Americas” as well as the cookbook “Backyard Kitchen: Mediterranean Salads,” and the app Sarina’s Sephardic Cuisine, as well as the owner of a consultant firm.

Next year the conference will be held in Cleveland, Ohio. “We are excited to be able to bring the 2019 conference to Cleveland next year, with the city’s many attractions and vibrant Jewish community,” said Ken Bravo, president of the association.
