Shabbat Services with Guest Speaker Natasha Goldman

Friday, April 9, 2021 27 Nisan 5781

6:00 PM - 8:00 PMZoom

Friday April 9th we’ll have a slightly abbreviated Shabbat evening service from 6:00-6:45 and then our very own Natasha Goldman will be our speaker. She’ll talk from 6:45-7:15 followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. 

Natasha will speak on Nathan Rapoport’s Monument to the Six Million (1964, Philadelphia), an example of an early (if not the first) public Holocaust memorial in the US. Creator of The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Monument (1948), Rapoport worked closely with Holocaust survivors to create this work of art. Although in a high profile spot, the sculpture has been “hidden in plain sight”—few people know of its existence. To find out why, join us April 9th! This half-hour presentation is based on a chapter of Natasha’s book. If you would like to read the chapter, beforehand, please let us know.
