How it Works

  1. Your initial consultation is FREE.  Together, we’ll discern your goals and desires for your life story project, and then design a package specially tailored to meet your needs.  Projects incorporate a variety of media – including audio/audio-visual recording of interviews and lifestory book writing.  There are multiple options you can add to enrich your project.
  2. Typically, there will be 10-12 hours of interviews (6 – 1 ½ hour interviews with subject, 2-3 hours with family members and others) – spread out over a 6-8 week period — done either in person or remotely.
  3. All the interviewees will be given a template of advanced organizer questions to prompt reflection, in preparation for each interview.  Questions will address all aspects of the life experience – events, transitions, relationships, emotions, themes, patterns, etc.
  4. You and your family members will be asked to collect photos, certificates, honors etc., to be scanned and incorporated into the jewishlifestory book (if applicable) – and to encourage further reflection about your life.
  5. (if applicable) Jewishlifestory will compile and write the jewishlifestory book after completion of the research and interviews.
  6. (if applicable) There will be a process of editing, reworking, and finalizing the text and design – with your review and consultation along the way.
  7. You will be provided a full CD or DVD set of the interviews and a jewishlifestory book (or per your package).  Additional copies of the book are available “at cost.”
  8. You will have a legacy of a lifetime, to hand down to the next generations.
