KERA and LIFT...did you know...

KERA, Dallas' public television station and LIFT share the same birth year....1961! And, KERA had 'live' reading classes for adults taught by the women of the National Council of Jewish Women who founded LIFT. Pat Peiser, one of LIFT's founding NCJW members, remembers the morning and afternoon classes where anybody with a television could tune in to take reading classes. As a history buff, I just love recognizing these connections. Happy 50th Birthday KERA. Happy 50th Birthday LIFT. Two fantastic educational institutions still serving the North Texas community.
