Witness to the Holocaust: Learning from a Survivor

Ralph Franklin was born in 1928 in Schlochau, Germany. During Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938, Ralph's teacher told him to return home because he was prohibited from attending a public school. When he arrived home the Gestapo was arresting his father and uncle. They were sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
This educational program has been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

"How Judaism Became an American Religion"

with Steven Weisman, New York Times Journalist & Author

Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00pm

Steven Weisman will discuss his book, The Chosen Wars: How Judaism Became an American Religion, which tells the dramatic history of how Judaism redefined itself in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries —the personalities that fought each other and shaped its evolution and, crucially, the American dynamic that transformed an ancient religion.

Interviewed by Ivy Barsky, RS Congregant & CEO and Gwen Goodman Director of the National Museum of American Jewish History.
