Voices of the Generations - Preserving the Memories and Stories of Holocaust Survivors

Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 7:00 pm

A Program for All Ages
An educational presentation by Julie Kohner, daughter of Hanna and Walter Kohner

Hanna and Walter Kohner had one of the few Holocaust stories with a happy ending.  

The two were childhood sweethearts in Czechoslovakia before the war, with big plans for the future.  When Hitler’s armies closed in, Walter managed to get to the States, where his brothers were living. Hanna was arrested and miraculously survived internment in four concentration camps, including Auschwitz.

Friday Noon Study Group

Fridays, 12-1 pm

Starting on October 31, our informal weekly discussion group will explore some of the most colorful stories drawn from Judaism’s Oral Torah, the Talmud.  We will be guided in our study by Ruth Calderon’s A Bride for One Night.

Meet the Midrash

Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 pm

Out of the texts of the Torah, the Rabbis created teachings bringing deeper meanings to the wisdom of the Jewish people known as Midrash. Each week we will explore some of these teachings based on the weekly Torah portion.
