Holocaust Commemoration

Please join the Ithaca Area United Jewish Community for a very special event, Thursday May 5 2016 from 7-9 pm, at Temple Beth-El, 402 N. Tioga Street, Ithaca NY.

Helen Levinson will be the featured speaker at the Ithaca Holocaust commemoration event on the evening of May 5th at 7 PM, in the sanctuary of Temple Beth El.

Helen is an 85 year old Rochester resident, who grew up in a Jewish family in Poland. Her father was a brewmaster at a Jewish owned brewery in Lublin. When the Nazi occupation began during WW II, her family was allowed to live in the brewery, rather than sent to live in the ghetto. Helen will tell us about her time in a concentration camp and her escape from Poland.

A reception will follow the presentation.
