Needham Community Holocaust Remembrance Day: Remembering Elie Wiesel-A Passion for Celebration
Sunday, April 11, 2021 * 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Join us as TBS and Temple Aliyah gather virtually for our annual Yom HaShoah Remembrance Program. This year, we welcome Dr. Alan Rosen, who served as a teaching assistant and doctoral student under Dr. Elie Wiesel for ten years and with whom Dr. Rosen remained close for almost forty years. Dr. Rosen has authored or edited fourteen books on Holocaust literature, testimony, and history. Through his presentation, Dr. Rosen will reflect upon Dr. Wiesel’s focus on the power of celebration as a driving force for his teaching and personal Holocaust testimony. Our program will conclude with prayers of memorial.
