On Sunday, November 6, at 7:00 p.m. Sanctuary of Congregation Shaaray Shalom will broadcast a recording of Eddie Jaku’s remembrance of Kristallnacht, his journey through the hell of the Shoah and his profound life lessons for all of us.
Eddie Jaku, Holocaust survivor and self-proclaimed happiest man on Earth, dedicated his life to promoting kindness, tolerance and resilience. Mr. Jaku was born Abraham Jakubowicz in Leipzig, Germany, in 1920. He personally witnessed and experienced the horrors of Kristallnacht in 1938. During the evacuation of Auschwitz in 1945 he was sent on a death march, but managed to get away. He moved to Australia in 1950 and vowed to make the world a better place for others, and to ensure that the terrible tragedy of the Holocaust will never happen again or ever be forgotten.
The commemoration will be broadcast from the Sanctuary of Congregation Shaaray Shalom, 711 Dogwood Avenue, West Hempstead, NY. You can attend in person or online via Zoom. The program will begin at 7 pm sharp.
