She and Avigal Rogoff, from Yeshiva College, were among 58 finalists from 24 countries who gathered for the 23rd such competition in the museum’s history.

Cayla’s project was Author’s in the Family, as both her grandfathers are authors. She created her display out of pages from their books, along with her own book filled with wisdom from her ancestors.

The finalists gathered for two days of learning, meetings, and international gatherings at Beit Hatfutsot’s Museum of the Jewish People. Participants toured the museum, described the stories behind their projects to their peers, joined international workshops, and attended the final awards ceremony.

My Family Story, a far-reaching educational initiative, is one of Beit Hatfutsot’s most innovative programmes.
