Yom Ha’Shoah Commemoration: Testimony from Peter Gorog

Sunday, May 1, 10:30 AM. Online. Yom Ha’Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) falls on April 28, 2022. The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is “Yom Ha’Shoah Ve-Hagevurah”— literally the “Day of (Remembrance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism.” Our students are fortunate to still have the opportunity to hear stories of survival directly from Holocaust survivors. This year we have two opportunities for them to participate. The second testimony will be given by Peter Gorog, who was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1941. He survived the Budapest ghetto. This session will be attended by 5th through 7th graders in the Religious School, but all are welcome.

Community Torah Repair Fundraiser

We want to invite you and your family to this unique opportunity to help our community and engage in the experience of writing a Sefer Torah. Each family will have a dedicated time slot with the soferet to help her fix one letter.
