Introduction to the Holocaust Memorial Garden at the JCC
Wednesday, May 18th, 11:30am – 12:30 pm: Erdle Lounge and Memorial Garden
Please join JCC Historian, Sheila Weinbach and friends as they explain the incredible significance of the JCC Memorial Garden. Bring lunch or a snack as you learn about a significant part of Jewish History. Sheila Gissin Weinbach was born in 1937 as WW2 was spreading to Poland from Germany. As a youngster, she would hear stories from her Romanian and Ukrainian born grandmothers about their experiences being targeted for Pogroms, attacks against Jews. As a teen, she taught religious school to children born in Displaced Peoples Camps in Europe. It was only natural that she should be attracted to a Holocaust survivor. She married survivor Kurt Weinbach in 1960 and they had 50 years together as husband and wife and best friends. She now tells his story. All are welcome! Register at the front desk or here.
