In 2017, Syracuse Jewish Family Service invited WRVO to help celebrate its 125th anniversary by recording the stories and significant lifetime experiences of central New Yorkers.  Now, we're sharing these stories with you.

StorySharingCNY brings you stories of family, friends, love... and life. Listen as our friends, neighbors and coworkers tell us their experiences in their own words.
