I’m both humbled and excited to announce that as part of The Auschwitz Escape book tour, I will be speaking at a Synagogue in Manhattan, in an event hosted by an Orthodox Rabbi.
The event will be called, “Are We Still Alone? In a time of crisis, will there be Christians standing with Jews?”
Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, Chancellor of Ohr Torah Stone, and the chief rabbi of the Israeli community of Efrat (ancient “Ephratah,” near Bethlehem), will be one of the main speakers. I will be the other.
The evening will be moderated by David Nekrutman, executive director of the Center for Jewish Christian Understanding and Cooperation. (CJCUC was founded by Rabbi Riskin.)
Please make plans to join us for a very special evening as we discuss the themes of the novel, some of the key lessons of the Holocaust, whether Christians risked their lives to save Jews, why many Jews felt alone during World War II, what Jews and Christians need to know about each other in light of history, and where Jewish-Christian relations stand today.
We also look forward to taking your questions.
** NOTE: Very important, the event is free, but you must RSVP to attend as there is limited seating. Please see below.
