Kaddish for a World Destroyed:

Remnants of Jewish Communities in Lithuania and Latvia
Wed. Dec. 14, 7pm, Zidell Chapel

When Victor Bloomfield and his wife, Elsa Shapiro, traveled to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia in 2009, they wanted to see the places where their forebears had lived more than a century ago. They knew that nearly all the Jews who had not left had been killed, and the Nazis and Soviets had largely destroyed Jewish towns and settlements; but they wanted to see what remained, and what it might have looked like when their ancestors lived there. Bloomfield, an accomplished photographer, returned with striking photos that movingly evoke time and place: the few active synagogues and some ruined ones, Jewish shtetls and city neighborhoods, killing fields, cemeteries, and places of resistance. The photos provide vivid documentation of how extensively Jewish life has been eradicated in these Baltic states that once were home to the greatest population of Jews in Europe; but they also show the beauty of the remaining and rebuilt Jewish architecture, and present a visual memorial of our common Jewish heritage. No cost. RSVP to Karen.
Prints will be offered for purchase with the entire sale price benefiting  Congregation Neveh Shalom.
