Todd is the Registrar at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU and has over 25 years of experience in the museum field, mainly dealing with collections. Since January 2021, he has been contracted to conduct an inventory and catalog the artifacts located in the Kester Cottages. In the process, he discovered some interesting items and information that had been moved and/or forgotten over the years. Join us and hear all about Todd's adventures in the Kester Museums.

We will have a our regular social-hour to catch up with friends and neighbors before the program outside and if numbers allow, move in the Hood Center for the presentation.
