Yom Kippur Afternoon Sessions
Wednesday, October 9
12:15 pm - 3:15 pm (Sessions run consecutively)
This year’s learning theme will revolve around the Shoah. Through a remarkable collection of Holocaust correspondence, we’ll hear the stories of parents and children through letters to and from Vienna, Dachau, and Buchenwald. We’ll also discuss what “never again” means, the parallels between then and today, and what we can do to prevent atrocities such as the Holocaust from happening again. These programs will be concluded with a short Q&A.
