Holocaust Remembrance Movie Night 2020

Who Will Write Our History

Dear Kol Haverim Friends,

Please join us to watch “Who will write our history” in recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. We will be watching the movie together at our member’s house on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 7:30PM. Please e-mail rsvp@kolhaverim.net for directions.

Who Will Write Our History: In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. Now, for the first time, their story is told as a feature documentary. Written, produced and directed by Roberta Grossman and executive produced by Nancy Spielberg, Who Will Write Our History mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

Darwin Day 2016: Is It Science vs. Religion or Something Else?

Darwin Day

Saturday, Feb 13 2016

Lifelong, 119 W Court St, Ithaca, NY 14850 (map)

5:30pm – 7:00pm (Dinner)

7:00pm – 8:30pm (Program)

Historically, the theory of evolution has encountered a great deal of resistance, much of it from people professing to be deeply religious. It is easy to cast the problem as science vs. religion, but that approach unnecessarily builds a wall between religious belief and scientific thought. We will examine and discuss what is really behind the repeated conflicts between science and the societies in which operates.

Program FREE and open to all.

For Dinner and Childcare, RSVP to programs@kolhaverim.net by Feb 11. Cost: Members – free, Guests – $10/Adult, $5/Child, $20/Family.
