Locked away in a crate for several decades until its recent public unveiling, a grave marker in Memphis revealed a little-known fact about one of America’s most iconic figures of the 20th century.  Yes, Elvis Presley, the King of Rock & Roll, had Jewish roots.  This highly visual presentation by travel writer Dan Fellner will take you to Elvis’ birthplace in Tupelo, Mississippi, and to the Graceland mansion in Memphis, to uncover the secrets of Elvis’ surprising connection to Judaism.  It’s a fascinating glimpse into Presley’s life and the multiculturalism that inspired his music.
