Coming Up This Week: April 11-16

Community Holocaust Remembrance Program Remembering Elie Wiesel:
A Passion for Celebration
Sunday, April 11, 11:30 am 
Join us as Temple Beth Shalom and Temple Aliyah gather virtually for our annual Yom HaShoah Remembrance Program. We welcome Dr. Alan Rosen, who served as a teaching assistant and doctoral student under Dr. Elie Wiesel for 10 years. They remained close for almost 40 years. Dr. Rosen has authored or edited 14 books on Holocaust literature, testimony, and history, including several on Elie Wiesel’s work. Dr. Rosen will reflect upon Wiesel’s focus on celebration and its relationship to his role as Holocaust memorializer and witness. Our program will conclude with memorial prayers and the lighting of memorial candles. Register here.
A Taste of Daf Yomi
Monday, April 12, 8:00 am
Sometimes, we do things for their own sake. (Torah study, in the rabbinic tradition, falls into this category.) Sometimes, we do things in order to accomplish a goal further down the road. (For some of us, exercising and losing weight fall into this category.) What are the steps on the road to redemption? We’ll read one particular suggestion in this week's Daf Yomi class

Musical Journeys Through The Holocaust with Cantor Gloth
Tuesday, April 13, 7:45 pm
Under even the most difficult of circumstances, music continued to be composed during the Holocaust. Music provided inspiration, comfort and was an outlet for self-expression and resistance. In the post-Holocaust world, music has played a vital role in creating and maintaining collective memory. We will explore this music as comfort, inspiration & collective memory as we continue to tell our story. To register, click here.
