Hello fellow students of Jewish history! I’m so glad to have met many of you over the past Shabbos in the Aish Thornhill Community Shul. For those of you who don’t live in walking distance, please join us tonight for the First Annual David Shentow Memorial Holocaust Lecture. Mr. Eli Rubenstein of March of the Living Canada will deliver introductory remarks, and we will hear a moving personal recollection from Holocaust Survivor Lea Hochman.
My lecture is “Torah from the Years of Wrath: The Warsaw Ghetto Writings of Rabbi Kalonymus Kalmish Shapira (the Aish Kodesh),” based on my recent book which discusses the spiritual heroism of this incomparable leader.
Please join us–I anticipate that his will be a moving and meaningful event.
