Witness to the Holocaust: Learning from a Survivor

Ralph Franklin was born in 1928 in Schlochau, Germany. During Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938, Ralph's teacher told him to return home because he was prohibited from attending a public school. When he arrived home the Gestapo was arresting his father and uncle. They were sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
This educational program has been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

in Elul, We Prepare: The Ethics of the Fathers, A Powerful One-Person Performance at RS

Wednesday, September 11 at 7:00pm


During the month of Elul, leading up to the High Holy Days, we prepare for our personal cheshbon nefesh, accounting of the soul. Join us for this unique opportunity to explore questions of ethics and morality, the depths of the soul, through a theater experience.

Ethics of the Fathers AKA The Gangster & The Grandpa, written and performed by Jesse Bernstein, explores morality, legacy, and Jewish entity in America and draws upon the stories of an unlikely friendship and the teachings of Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers). Click here to RSVP. Contact Benay Stein for more information.
