Growing up as a Jew in Brooklyn involved unique experiences. It could have been playing stickball in the one of the borough’s many parks, enjoying the beaches of Coney Island in the summer, playing street games after school, taking in a Brooklyn Dodgers game or weekend matinees. Whatever it was, we would love to hear about your Brooklyn Jewish experiences. Please limit your stories to 400 words. To read other stories submitted by so many other people, click here! We’d also love to see your photos of Brooklyn Jewish life! If you have a photo to send us, please upload it as a jpg and provide us with a caption. We look forward to receiving your Brooklyn Jewish Experience! Thank you! - Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative
