Author Ellen Friedman to guest speak at Temple Judea

Ellen Friedman, author of “The Seven, A Family Holocaust Story,” will be the guest speaker at Temple Judea on April 4 at 7 p.m. This event is sponsored by WRJ Sisterhood of Temple Judea in partnership with the Sid Jacobson JCC and the Jewish Book Council and is open to the community.

The Seven was a name given to a set of Polish Jews from Warsaw, most of them related, by their fellow refugees in the Gulags of the USSR. This story provides a glimpse into the repercussions of the Holocaust for one extended family who survived.

Based on primary interviews and told in the blending of past and present experiences, Friedman gives a new voice to Holocaust memory, one that is sure to resonate with today’s exiles and refugees.

Friedman will take questions and sign her book following her presentation.

Admission is $10 per person and books are available to purchase for $26 at the temple office. Please make checks payable to WRJ Sisterhood and mail to Temple Judea at 333 Searingtown Road, Manhasset, NY 11030.

RSVP to Temple Judea at 516-621-8049 or email [email protected].
