Learn with Rhonda Fink-Whitman about Her Advocacy of New Holocaust Education in PA

What is your response to the anti-Semitism in our history and in today’s world? Perhaps the most important Jewish response is to begin with learning.  On Sunday, Nov. 9 at 3:00 pm at Rodeph Shalom, in observance of Krystallnacht, Night of the Broken Glass, the series of coordinated attacks against the Jews throughout Germany and Austria on Nov. 9, 1938, we will join together and learn with Rhonda Fink-Whitman author of 94 Maidens and successful advocate for Holocaust education in PA was passed in Pennsylvania recommending that Holocaust education be taught in all public, charter and cyber schools. A trip to Germany uncovered the horrible truth about what happened to her mother during WW II and she felt that it was her responsibility to tell the story as she does in 94 Maidens.  Together, we will deepen our understanding and glean inspiration from her advocacy.

There is no charge so please bring a sweet to be served with tea.  Please rsvp to Julia Erlichman: juliadiane501@gmail.com.  Thank you to the RS Women for bringing us together for this important discussion!

    This will be a wonderful event. I read 94 Maidens a while ago and it’s a well-written and very touching story that was extremely difficult to put down. Also Rhonda and I were high school classmates so I’m looking forward to seeing her on a personal level as well.
