Yom Ha’Shoah / Holocaust Remembrance

Temple Beth El of Hammonton invites the community to our Yom Ha’Shoah / Holocaust Remembrance Day Event.

Tammy Forstater, daughter of Holocaust survivors Eda Eigerman Schiff and Irwin Newman, and an active participant in the community of second generation survivors of Philadelphia, will be our guest speaker.  We hope you can join us as Tammy shares her personal stories with our Temple Beth El family.

We are also pleased to welcome Rabbi Kevin Hale who is an expert Scribe or “Sofer” who will be working on one of our Torahs that day to ensure it is fully Kosher for years to come.  Rabbi Hale will also be sharing his experience as the child of survivors and his involvement in repairing rescued Scrolls from Nazi Germany.

We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Tammy and Rabbi Hale to our Temple Beth El family.

Stay afterwards for conversation and light refreshments.

To cover the cost of this event, a small donation of $10 per person for non-members is suggested.

Note from event publisher:  in an effort to find clip art or a picture to add to this event publication, I came across the website for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.  Please visit their site at ushmm.org.  Clip art or one picture cannot replace the experience I had reading their site.
