Service Planned for Holocaust Victims
A somber remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust is scheduled for April 24 at Temple Etz Chaim in Thousand Oaks.
The Sabbath service will include a talk by Adelle Chabelski, who until recently served as president of Second Generation, an international organization of the sons and daughters of Holocaust survivors.
Chabelski’s work also includes videotaping more than 40,000 Holocaust survivors as part of a project for Steven Spielberg’s Survivors of Shoah Visual History Foundation.
The service will begin at 8:15 p.m. and will be conducted by Rabbi Shimon Paskow. Cantor Jeff Cohen will chant liturgy. Cantor emeritus Leopold Szneer, a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps, will chant the traditional Kel Maleh Rachamin Memorial Prayer. And the entire congregation will join Rabbi Paskow in reciting the Mourner’s Kaddish.
Temple Etz Chaim is at 1080 Janss Road. For more information call 497-6891.
