  • Esther Starobin, Survivor and Museum Volunteer.

Event Chair:

  • Heather Brooks Karatz, Western Region Next Gen and Friends Chair.

    I am wanting to connect with Esther Starobin because of a possibility that we may somehow be related. My maiden name is Starr, which was anglicized when my grandparents came over from Russia and Poland. The original family name was Starobinski. I assumed Starobin was anglicized as well. If you would care to pass this on to Esther I’d greatly appreciate it. And, if Esther is interested in playing Jewish geography to see if there is a familial connection, I’d love to hear from her.
