Join us on Wednesday, May 4 at 8 pm as special guest Deborah Shelkan Remis discusses “From a Number to a Name: A Journey to Reclaiming a Name from the Shoah.” Remis, daughter of the late Cantor Gregor Shelkan of Congregation Mishkan Tefila, will describe her journey uncovering the story about her father’s first wife, Sara Rashina, a young Jewish violin virtuoso from Latvia who perished in the Holocaust. Remis will discuss how she came to produce a multimedia musical presentation titled “Sara’s Voice sotto voce” to share Sara’s story, and about her belief that researching and sharing the life of one of the six million victims of the Holocaust is to return that person’s dignity and soul and give them back a voice. Remis’ talk—part of the joint Holocaust Memorial Program of Temple Aliyah and Temple Beth Shalom to mark Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day)—will be followed by the recitation of memorial prayers for all of those who suffered at the hands of the Nazis.+ More... - Less...
