Event: Schmoozing with Survivors

Posted by moshez on April 10, 2011

Where: Temple House at Temple Emanu-El — 1010 University Ave., San Jose, CA
When: May 1st, 2011 4:30pm-6pm
Organizer: Shanda K. and Aleeza A.

Jews’ Next Dor & Temple Emanu-El’s Chai Society are sponsoring a Yom HaShoah event prior to the community activities.

We welcome all young adults and survivors of the Holocaust, and their extended families to share a light dairy buffet dinner together. We hope to create some new friendships. This event provides a personal and powerful connection between the past and the present, young and old.

This event is free to all survivors and their spouses and is $12 for all others who wish to attend. You must register by April 28th.

Sponsored by Jews’ Next Dor, Temple Emanu-El’s Chai Society and the Silicon Valley Holocaust Survivor Association

We are also looking for some volunteers to drive survivors to the event and a few to help out at the event. We are specifically looking for drivers from the Sunnyvale and Mountain View areas…come on, be a mensch! If you are able to do this or to volunteer please contact Shanda, Aleeza or JewsNextDor@beth-david.org.
