Intergenerational Yom Hashoah Observance

Loading Map....

As part of the observance, CEEW congregant Peter Shelley will talk about how in the spring of 1940, his family lived in Brussels, Belgium. For those who are familiar with the German invasion westward to France (depicted in the movie Dunkirk), Shelley will share the human toll on his family – including the family’s escape, its safe sanctuary, safety in the United States and lifelong impacts.

The morning will begin with an introduction by Cantor Deborah Martin, CEEW’s spiritual leader, followed by Shelley’s presentation from 10:15-11 a.m.

There will be a candle lighting and memorial service beginning at 11 a.m. Anyone – CEEW member or non-member – who comes from a family that was affected by the Holocaust, or who were themselves a victim of the Holocaust, are invited to light a candle in memorial of those who died during the Holocaust or afterward. Please contact Cantor Martin (spiritualleader@waukeshatemple.org or 262 547-7180) if you would like to light a candle that day.
