Remembering the Four Chaplains

Feb. 3, 1943, the American troop transport ship Dorchester was sunk by a German U-boat. The four chaplains aboard - three Christian ministers and one rabbi - stayed on deck, helping the soldiers to get safely away, and ended up going down with the sinking ship. Who were these “Immortal Chaplains”?

Join us for a discussion of these heroic efforts. We are honored to have Master Sergeant William Kaemmer, Executive Director of the Chapel of the Four Chaplains, and Michelle Nolfi, Chapel Director, join us on behalf of the Four Chaplains Chapel & Memorial Foundation.

Thanks to all who came out for our Chanukah Happening

- Chanukah history and sing-along to Chanukah songs in English, Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino!

Other past events include a viewing and discussion on "Who Will Write Our History," a 90-minute documentary film about Emanuel Ringelblum and the Oyneg Shabes Archive, the secret archive he created and led in the Warsaw Ghetto. The film is based on the book of the same name by historian Samuel Kassow.

The Oyneg Shabes Archive is an extraordinary achievement of self-study in the very depths of hell, documenting not only how the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto died but how they lived. With 30,000 pages of writing, photographs, posters, advertisements, documents, and more, the Oyneg Shabes Archive is the most important cache of in-the-moment eyewitness accounts to survive the Holocaust. It is the Dead Sea Scrolls rising from the rubble of the Ghetto.
