Yom HaShoah Commemoration: The Opposite of Trauma is Presence
Please join us as we remember and commemorate the Holocaust and remember all those who were lost.
In addition to a service with readings and music, inlcuding participation of Kol Rinnah, our adult choir, Rabbi Mosbacher will be in public conversation with Dr. Jacob Ham, Director of the Center for Child Trauma and Resilience. Join Rabbi Mosbacher and Dr. Ham as they discuss how healing from trauma leads us to a state of full, loving presence with ourselves, others and the divine, creating a moment of beauty set against the memory of the Holocaust.
