The Reher Center Committee has been together since 2002.  It first formed on an ad hoc basis to assemble an exhibit on a Jewish History of Kingston in conjunction with the 350th anniversary celebration of the founding of Kingston.  The joy of working together to create an exhibit that drew such a positive response from the community encouraged the members to stay together to plan another project for the following year.  To read about the history and evolution of the committee, follow these links below:
