About the Event

Judith Itzhak (mother of CBI Religious School Teacher Miki Karni) was born September 1940, in the Ferramonti concentration camp in southern Italy. She lived in the camp through the war until till the age of 4.5 when she and her family made Aliyah to the Land of Israel.

Her memories have been recorded and archived by the Yad Vashem Institute in Jerusalem.

Judith is visiting from Israel and has offered to come tell her story to us in person. Join us over coffee and bagels as she shares an interactive presentation of her family's history and her personal experiences during the war, growing up and living under such incredibly difficult and uncertain circumstances.

The talk will include a presentation of original photographs.

Judith's story differs from many other Shoah narratives, and carries the heartwarming message of hope, optimism, and triumph as her family lived to be a part of the birth of the Modern State of Israel.

We encourage all to join in person though if you are more comfortable, we will also be streaming through Zoom.

Whether joining in person, or logging in through Zoom, please register HERE.
