Never Again is Now: Remembrance

Never Again is now… Haltered against Israel and violence against Jews is on the rise across the entire world. Yom Hashoah is the day we remember the Holocaust. And now its more important then ever to realize how far animosity and division can take people.

Please join us for a time of remembrance and a presentation by a special guest. Michel Ruskin, the author of “The Vow: A Love Story and the Holocaust,” will tell a stirring story of his parents whose love flourished amid the horrors of war. This is a family-friendly event with Q and A by the author.

Yom Hashoah Yitzkor and Presentation, Sunday May 5 at 2 p.m.

Before the Holocaust, in 1930s world’s Jewish population was just over 15 million with roughly a half living in Europe. The Nazis murdered 6 million Jews and only recently we have crossed the 15 million mark again. As much as Israel and Jews are in the news, you would think that Jews are so numerous. Yet Jews are only 0.2 of a percent of the word’s population of 8 billion, and those who practice Judaism are even less. Our Synagogue’s doors are always open to those who wish to build bridges of mutual understanding and trust.
