CONGREGATION OF REFORM JUDAISM
982 MALONE DRIVE, ORLANDO
The current rise of antisemitism is causing great concern worldwide. Businesses and synagogues have been vandalized and damaged, and Jewish citizens have been brutally attacked. The most publicized attacks have targeted Jews in Europe, but antisemitism clearly exists in America as well. According to the Anti-Defamation League’s Global 100 Report, 26 percent of people surveyed harbor antisemitic attitudes and believe in a majority of the traditional anti-Jewish stereotypes that were tested.
In an effort to educate our Central Florida community about the current state of antisemitism, the Holocaust Center is partnering with the Congregation of Reform Judaism to bring Dr. Deborah Lipstadt to Orlando on Thursday, October 8. She will speak about the “new” antisemitism; how it is different from the religious and racial antisemitism of yesterday, and how we, as a global community should respond to it.
This event is open to the community.Tickets start at $18 and sponsorships are available.For more information go to http://www.lipstadtinorlando.com./
Our Community Book Club meets every other month on a Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Holocaust Center’s library. Everyone is welcome to join at any time; there is no cost to participate.
July 19, 2015 – All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
“A novel to live in, learn from, and feel bereft over when the last page is turned.” — Booklist
“Tackling questions of survival, endurance and moral obligations during wartime, the book is as precise and artful and ingenious as the puzzle boxes the heroine’s locksmith father builds for her. Impressively, it is also a vastly entertaining feat of storytelling.” – New York Times Book Review
October 11, 2015 – The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure
“A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man’s unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war.” —Malcolm Gladwell
“A thrilling debut novel of World War II Paris, from an author who’s been called “an up and coming Ken Follett.” —Booklist
