Yom HaShoah – The Next Generations

Wednesday night’s Yom HaShoa program at Bonai Shalom attracted a wide range of ages and members of the community. With a big assist from students of CAJE-Hebrew High, the community came together to honor survivors of the Shoah as well as children of survivors.

Rabbi Marc Soloway and Rabbi Ori Har of Haver, Boulder’s Rabbinic Fellowship, opened the evening’s program. Rabbi Har noted that the night’s value in the counting of the Omer was “Beauty in Strength or Gratitude that comes from Strength.” This took on added meaning as the evening unfolded, with mother-daughter pairs in conversation telling their own stories of survival and growth. Irene and Beverly Rosenschein, Doris and Miriam Small and Rabbi Ori and Lael Har shared brief recollections in armchair interviews.

This annual remembrance day is set aside, through the wisdom of our tradition, with an amazing opportunity to still hear from the remaining few blessed survivors,” said Gary Kornfeld.

We were privileged to record parts of the conversations.
