Southern Jewish Voices meets Esther Schuster: The video

Esther Schuster, who was at the helm of Collat Jewish Family Services for nearly two decades before retiring in 2011, was the featured guest of the inaugural session of The J’s new Southern Jewish Voices program on September 29. All SJV programs will be recorded and archived for the benefit of future generations.

The next session, on November 17, will feature David Sher.

Esther’s 30 years in Birmingham as a social worker, mother, and member of Temple Beth-El gave her plenty to talk about when she was interviewed by Beth-El’s Director of Engagement Margaret Norman in front of a live audience.
