Yom Hashoah Seder April 27, 3PM. Jacobo Rubinstein, author of the Haggadah for Yom Hashoah, will lead this community seder for a multi-generational audience. An opportunity to remember and honor the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and celebrate the faith and hope represented by the creation of the state of Israel. "The "Shoah Seder" creates a beautiful balance both of memory and of transcendence. As such, it has become a major tool for sharing and healing."
Manny Lindenbaum, May 2 at 6PM. Hear the story of Manny Lindenbaum, a survivor of the last Kindertransport out of Poland in 1939. Now, Manny, who is 82 years old, lives the childhood he, his sister and many other children never had the chance to live. He bridges the world of the most horrific crimes against humanity to a world where there is no hatred. Come and listen to Manny speak on Friday night, May 2, 2014 and you will be brought to tears by the tragedy and lifted to laughter by his playful spirit.
