Israel Congregation ’ s Shoah Speaker Event
Please join us for a 2024 Shoah speaker event , where we will host a very special speaker and incredibly impactful program that will take place at Israel Congregation in Manchester ( 6025 Main Street ) on April 28 at 5pm . We invite you to come listen to and meet author Michelle Weinfeld . Weinfeld ’ s love of history and storytelling drove her to write her debut intergenerational memoir , From Generation to Generation , which interweaves her experiences with antisemitism with the story of her grandfather , Poppy , a Holocaust survivor . Poppy ’ s account of rebuilding , layered with Weinfeld ’ s journey to self-acceptance in the face of antisemitism , shows readers that trauma does not affect only the individual , but can transcend generations . From Generation to Generation explores the intersection of values , history , and identity and is a personal and historical story that is so important to hear in the world we live in today .
Although this program is not recommended for young children , parents are encouraged to include older children as they feel appropriate and encourage their teens to attend . This program is meant for both those new to learning about the Holocaust and those wishing to learn more , or even those who have heard many speakers . Major funding for this event is provided by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation with the goal of promoting family educational events . RSVPs are required for the event at form . jotform . com / 240883073931156 . For more , contact office @ icmvt . com or 802-362-4578 .
