Holocaust Memorial Observance
Apr 21 @ 5:11 pm – 6:11 pm

Despite a lifetime of study, Mitch Braff first learned about the Jewish partisans in the Fall of 2000. He discovered that an old family friend was actually a former Jewish partisan, someone who took up arms against the Nazis during World War II. Braff found that current Holocaust history made little mention of the Jewish partisans and educational material on the subject was practically non-existent. He changed that when he started the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation (JPEF)

Shabbat Morning Torah Study
Apr 22 @ 8:30 am – 9:45 am

Bagels and coffee provided.
