Community shabbat dinner featuring 2nd generation shoah survivor

FRIDAY, May 24

6:15 PM Dinner
7:30 PM Kaddish followed by Speaker

Temple Israel member Jeanne Schrier will tell the story of her mother, a survivor of the Shoah (Holocaust). Jeanne writes: "In the last year of her life my mother, a Holocaust survivor, asked me if after her death I would tell her story. It has taken me 6 years to gain the fortitude to dig deep into my memory and into her writings to start to tell that story. My mother's story recapitulates the history of our people. She had suffered horrific losses, had been thrust from her home, had been a prisoner, a slave, and a fighter. Ultimately it is the story of survival and resilience, of rebuilding a life in a new place, while forever longing for home and the Land of Israel."

NOTE:  THIS EVENT IS FOR TEMPLE MEMBERS ONLY.  You must be logged into your temple account to RSVP.
