Join the Jean Fischman Chabad Center of the Five Towns on Tishah B’Av, July 16 at 5:30 p.m., at 74 Maple Avenue in Cedarhurst for film, study, and personal reflection. Triumph of Hope, a professionally produced, emotionally gripping, and intense 25-minute documentary features Holocaust survivors recounting their own memories of bitachon, mitzvos performed, and Jewish identity maintained in the most horrible moments. It weaves together their personal recollections, stories, and sentiments along with a rare video clip of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, OBM, speaking about the Holocaust.
Following the film, Rabbi Wolowik will lead a 50-minute JLI learning class about finding faith during difficult times.
Admission is free. RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org or 516-295-2478.
