Hi Next Generations Group,

We all have different experiences growing up as descendants of Holocaust survivors, or as supporters who were impacted in some way. own. Last year, Next Gen member Richard agreed to facilitate some Next Generations Group get-togethers, and for our October meeting, he proposed a panel and open discussion on the theme: what it means to be Jewish in today’s world, and in what ways do we personally express that? Especially in terms of being a descendant or supporter of our mission. Rosalyn and I are helping Richard to plan the get-together while Diana is in Europe.

Recap: Sept. 22, 2018 Amy Shapiro songs and Ruth Lindemann book talk

 

 

A big thank you to Ruth Lindemann and Amy Shapiro for sharing their passion and talents at our get-together on Sat. Sept. 22 at Congregation Beth Israel. And thank you to Susie at CBI for help with room arrangements. The boardroom was packed as we were entertained by – and joined in –  to Amy’s songs in Yiddish and English. She is always a delight to hear! And to Ruth’s amazing life story through her books.
 
Ruth talked about her two fictional books and how their stories are woven with history, her personal history as a child survivor in Vienna, and stories from people she knows and knew through the Holocaust. Please seeruthlindemann.com for details of her books. Ruth also announced that 100% of the proceeds of book sales that day would be donated to the Next Generations Group. Thank you to those who bought a book and to James Spivak who bought a case-worth. We are so grateful for her generosity and support for our group. Thank you again to Amy and Ruth. Your involvement with Next Gen and our mission are deeply appreciated. 
Enjoy the photos attached.
 
We found a heart shaped earring in the boardroom after everyone left. If it’s yours, please email Diana. Also, since this get-together was open to the community, if you attended and then received this email and wish not to receive future emails from Next Gen, just let me know.
All the best,
