The Tri-City Interfaith Council invites the public to attend their annual Holocaust Remembrance Service on April 22 at 7:30 pm. The service is held at Temple Beth Torah, 42000 Paseo Padre Parkway, Fremont.
This year, traveling storyteller and author Joel ben Izzy will be the featured speaker. In a world with fewer survivors left each year to recount their tales, each of us becomes heir to their stories.
This is the first time that the service will feature a guest speaker who is not a Holocaust Survivor. Instead, through the lens of a man who has made it his life’s work to gather and tell stories, we will both hear survivors’ tales as well as tales from other cultures that may help us to create a world that is more just, humane, and compassionate – the most fitting tribute to those we have lost.
