VSHJ Yom HaShoah Commemoration on Sunday, April 27th

Yom HaShoah commemoration, followed by a 38 minute documentary film “Beautiful Music”, the remarkable story of Devorah Schramm, an American-born, Orthodox Jewish pianist and composer who, after relocating to Israel, taught piano to a 9-year old blind and severely autistic Palestinian girl, Rasha Hamid, in the worst days of the Intifada. This heartwarming true story of the dedication of a teacher to her student is a snapshot of what is possible when peace finally comes to the Middle East. It is a testimony to the human spirit and to the incredible talents and resources that Israel has to offer and is eager to share with the entire region.

When:  Sunday, April 27th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm

Where:  Jewish Community Centre of Victoria, 3636 Shelbourne St.

Everyone is welcome.
