Our Legacy: HSS social events revived

JFCS clinicians recently facilitated an educational and social event for about 40 Holocaust Survivors in Congregation Shaarie Torah’s social hall. 

“Our Legacy: How Our Stories Create a New Narrative of Hope for the Future” featured a group conversation followed by a catered kosher lunch topped off with traditional Russian sweets like jam-filled pirozhki and a glass of white wine for all – as well as music performed by the three-member Hora Tzigane Klezmer Ensemble. 

This was the first event of its kind since the March 2020 start of the pandemic that spelled isolation, particularly for this demographic. Attendees like Nikolay, 95, had a fantastic time. 

“Being close to your loved ones. This is legacy,” he said.
