Message from Rabbi Brian in Response to Attack on Jews in Pittsburgh, October 27, 2018

HIDDEN IN FRANCE On Sunday, October 14, 2018, Congregation Tikkun v’Or was pleased to present “Hidden in France,” a program about ordinary people in a small village in Normandy, France, who resisted and saved 30 Jewish children from 1942-1945.  Thanks to Jonathan Plotkin, we have a video recording of their presentation: https://youtu.be/0J2snGDiqlA
