We hope you will attend our afternoon of remembrance, spirituality, music, and learning.
We will be honored by the participation of Galit Peleg, Head of the Department for Public Diplomacy and Academic Affairs at the Consulate General of Israel in New York, as well as Jersey City representatives, Rabbis from Temple Beth-El, United Synagogue of Hoboken, and Congregation B’nai Jacob, Cantor David Krasner of Bellerose Jewish Center in Floral Park, NY, a choir from United Synagogue of Hoboken, and a cellist from Manhattan’s Aristo Strings.
The keynote speaker will be Carla Main, a congregation member and journalist. Ms. Main is the daughter of Albert Post, author of the first curriculum in the U.S. for teaching the Holocaust in secondary schools. Ms. Main will discuss how Holocaust education began in the early 1970s and why it matters now more than ever.
