Holocaust
Remembrance
Program
On Thursday, May 5 at 7:30
p.m. Temple Beth El, West
End Temple and the Jewish
War Veterans will co-spon-
sor a community-wide pro-
gram commemorating Hol-
ocaust Remembrance Day,
also known as Yom HaSho-
ah. This event, open to
adults and children of all
religions and faiths, will be
held in the Main Sanctuary
of Temple Beth El, 201 Beach
121st Street on the corner of
Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
This moving program be-
gins with a candlelight pro-
cession by Survivors of the
Holocaust and members of
their families. There will be
messages from noted com-
munity members, a youth
presentation, and an oppor-
tunity to hear noted author
and lecturer Luna Kauf-
man. Mrs. Kaufman is inter-
nationally known and is a
tireless champion of Jew-
ish Christian understand-
ing and has been inspired
by Sister Rose Thering, the
Catholic nun who led the
fight to eliminate anti-Sem-
itism from school textbooks.
Mrs. Kaufman has had the
honor and privilege of hav-
ing an audience with Pope
John Paul II.
In today’s troubled world
where we are confronted
with intolerance and hatred
on a daily basis, we hope
all members of the Rocka-
way community will come
together for this important
evening, so that we may
learn from our past in order
not to repeat it.
