Dear Beth Am family,

This year, Yom Ha'Shoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) is observed from sundown of Wednesday May 1st ending at sundown on Thursday May 2nd.

On Friday May 3rd, during services (7 PM start time), in addition to our 7th graders graduating and 4th graders receiving their siddurim, we will be hosting Stanley Ronell who will be speaking about his experiences during the Shoah (Holocaust).

Mr. Ronell was born in Krakow, Poland, is a Holocaust survivor, and was saved with his mother by being hidden in Poland and Hungary by “The Righteous Among Nations”. His father perished in Auschwitz. Most of his father’s and mother’s family died in various concentration camps. Mother and son came to the USA in 1951. 
 
Ronell has devoted himself to the teaching of the Holocaust to students in secular and religious schools. He has lectured on the subject of the Holocaust to over 12,000 students, including student teachers, full time teachers, and various adult groups. Ronell’s passion is to fulfill the legacy of “Remember” left by the six million Jews who perished at the hands of the Nazis, and through education, ensure that a Holocaust never happens again.

Please join us as we hear his incredible story and ensure that we never forget!
