Scholar in Residence Weekend

Temple Beth Shalom welcomes Dr. Sam Kassow as our Scholar in Residence from June 6-8, 2019.

Dr. Kassow is the author of Who Will Write Our History: Rediscovering a Hidden Archive from the Warsaw Ghetto. An award-winning film by the same name, based on the book, tells the story of a group of spiritual resistors who risked their lives so that the truth would survive, even if they did not.
