Zachor - Remember
Sunday, April 30, at 9:30 AM
A joint project of the Minyan Club and Men's Club presents
Guest Speaker Seymour Kaplan
Please join the Minyan and Mens Club in honoring Seymour Kaplan, a liberator of the Dachau concentration camp. Not yet graduated from high school, Mr. Kaplan, now 93, enlisted in the army and became a machine gunner. When it was discovered that he was fluent in Yiddish, he was transferred to a division that liberated concentration camps, where he served as a translator. Discouraged by family and friends from speaking of the horrors he witnessed, Mr. Kaplan blocked his war time memories. It was only after an emotional reunion with fellow soldiers that those traumatic memories came flooding back. Mr. Kaplan, aware of the significance of his first hand knowledge, has spent the last two decades sharing his experiences and educating others about the Shoah.You don't want to miss the incredible story of this young Brooklyn serviceman, the liberation of the Dachau concentration, and how it shaped his life. 17 and over only. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718 357-1028 There is no fee for this event.
On Monday evening, May 1 at 7:30 PM, we’ll be celebrating the best of classic Israeli music and enjoying an Israeli café menu at our annual Yom Ha’atzmaut Zimriyah, sponsored by the Avidor family in loving memory of Arie Avidor.
Please join us.
