Survivors of Memphis
Survivors of the Holocaust can be found in almost every country. They live in cities all over the US. Susan had the privilege to meet Survivors in Memphis at the Jewish Community Center. Yacov shared how his family was in a ghetto, marched from their village in a group and he remembers starving during that time. Though a child, Yacov was impacted by the fear, hunger and overwhelming sense of dread. Even today you can sense the continued effect on his life. Survivors, whether in Israel or in your home town, need to know someone cares. We would encourage each one of you who is reading this, to reach out to the Survivors in your city.
Tea Time at Beit Shalom!
Praying, planning and hoping… preparing the garden and house… finally, it happened! Russian Holocaust Survivors came to Beit Shalom for a “Tea!” It was a combined effort of all the Volunteers: Lars & Gitte, Elena, Galina, Michael & McKenna along with Yonatan. They loved it! One of the ladies even sang for them in Yiddish!
We will plan to do it again with another group of Survivors, giving more the opportunity of family fun!

The students at each school were awesome! Attentive, interested and willing to accept the challenge of becoming the New Survivor, to carry on the experiences of the Survivors. It is humbling to see these young people embrace the history so the Survivors will not be forgotten.
