 THURSDAY, APRIL 8TH, 11:00 AM - YOM HA'SHOAH "WITNESSES IN UNIFORM"

A unique look at Yom Ha'Shoah; I will show segments from a documentary film I made of the IDF Officers’ trip to Auschwitz. We will follow it with a discussion of what it is like to walk in that place as an Israeli soldier, about the significance of this day, how it gains new meaning when you are in uniform, what it is like in Israel on this day and how important it is to keep these stories alive even after our survivors are sadly no longer with us.

     

TUESDAY, APRIL 13TH, 7:30 PM -  YOM HA'ZIKARON - "TASTE OF MEMORIES"

Connect to Israel’s fallen heroes in a special way; We will connect on a personal level and remember the soldiers through food and love. We all have a special dish or recipe that reminds us of someone dear to us and this is our way to keep them with us and cherish their memory. We will cook and taste the dishes, hear the story behind the dish, and learn about the bereaved families’ memories of the fallen soldier. Please join me on a journey of memories, tastes, and stories. We will be baking Hadar Cohen's favorite chocolate cake.
