This is a special enrichment program designed to bring Holocaust survivors together in a heimishe atmosphere. All members will have the opportunity to schmooze and share in social, recreational, and educational activities in a weekly social program. This enrichment program will offer health monitoring, group therapy, short-term counseling and crisis intervention. Kosher lunch will be provided along with round trip door-to-door transportation (on a limited basis).
This program is supported by the Menachen Stern Memorial Fund of UJA-Federation.
Second Generation Holocaust Group
Second Generation is a network of the children of Holocaust survivors. We are linked together with the common goal of preserving and honoring our legacy, providing support, tackling issues of mutual interest and informing and teaching future generations. For more information, please call the JCC at 516-569-6733.
Survivors of the Holocaust
The generation of Holocaust survivors has stories of their lives in Europe, both before and during the war. Survivors may feel that the memories, although difficult, must be shared to be preserved. The JCC offers an opportunity for survivors to come together and talk about their own unique chapter of Jewish history. Come meet new friends with similar backgrounds in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The JCC also offers entitlement assistance, case management, home visits and crisis intervention to any survivor. Café Europa programs will be planned including social events, holiday celebrations and festive lunches and trips.
Education and Outreach
Throughout the year our Holocaust survivors provide speaking engagements to schools, yeshivas and community forums to educate others on the evils of the Holocaust. For further information please call Cathy Byrne, MS, RN at 516-569-6733.
