In honor of the opening of the National Museum of American Jewish History, in downtown Philadelphia, on November 14, 2010, residents from Martins Run have been passing along their own history to younger generations through a number of initiatives at the Marple Township, Pa.-based senior living community. Paying tribute to Veterans Day, Martins Run will host “Talking Portraits,” a program in which resident veterans will meet with students from Temple Shalom, in Broomall, to share their experiences and recount stories from their time in the service. As the veterans and students talk, Martins Run art teacher, Lisa Learner, will paint the residents’ portraits. The paintings, as well as notes from the discussion, will be used to create a Martins Run Veterans scrapbook.
