Book Talk with Author Judy Batalion

via Zoom

Sunday, January 23, 1:00 pm

The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos: While conducting research on Hanna Senesh, Judy Batalion unexpectedly found the 1946 Yiddish book, Freuen in di Ghettos (Women in the Ghettos), filled with accounts about young Jewish women who defied the Nazis. These Polish-Jewish “ghetto girls” paid off Gestapo guards, hid revolvers in teddy bears, flirted with Nazis, and shot them. They distributed underground bulletins, flung Molotov cocktails, bombed German supply trains, organized soup kitchens, and were bearers of the truth about what was happening to the Jews. In this discussion, Judy will relay several of these women’s stories, describe her years of research into the history of Polish-Jewish resistance, and discuss why so many of these tales remained hidden for so long.

Services

Spiritual meaning and fulfillment does not mean the same thing to everyone in our community. We, as a community, seek to explore the meaning behind Jewish traditions, laws and rituals, and to adapt those into our spiritual lives today.

About Us

We believe that the congregants of our community play a vital role in developing and contributing to our spiritual life. While rabbinic leadership is vitally important to our TBS community, we also incorporate lay-leadership and participation into our services to further enhance the strength of our community, and to create a truly inclusive and dynamic Jewish community.

Visiting

Join us in our quest for knowledge, understanding, and a connection to our community, our people, and our commitment to Judaism and the land of Israel.

Get Connected

Our goal is to expand our knowledge and understanding of Judaism and what it means to us as an individual and as a community.

Have Kids?

We strive to encourage interesting educational programs that are not only thought provoking, but fun and engaging.
