Difficult Teshuvah ("repentence" or "turning back"):
Our topic is forgiveness and the complexities of lingering anger, pain, and uncertainty.
How can we welcome in the New Year when we're carrying emotional baggage?
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.
