On this Shabbat, we remember Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, which was a pogrom against Jews carried out by the Nazi party. We will hear from a survivor of this horrific event who will share his story.
November Shabbat Theme: Remembrance and Gratitude
This month, as we commemorate Kristallnacht and celebrate Thanksgiving, we will focus on how precious is the gift of life. Memory allows us to bring forward pain from our past, so that we learn to treasure the present and build for the future. Gratitude enables us to savor the blessings that constantly surround us, and to cultivate the strength and resilience to move through life’s challenges with renewed joy and appreciation.
Join us in person at the Schaefer Family Campus or watch online.
