Services of remembrance at synagogue

SAINT AUGUSTINE – Remembering what happened Nov. 09–10, 1938, in Nazi Germany, this weekend First Congregation Sons of Israel will conduct services remembering this tragic event, which some say was the impetus for what became known as the Holocaust.  During that time in 1938, Nazis operating under official approval smashed Jewish-owned businesses, destroyed synagogues, and rounded up many Jewish men and sent them to concentration camps.  This event became known as Kristallnacht, or the “Night of the Broken Glass.” Visiting Rabbi Joel Fox will be leading services.

Friday, Nov. 10, Erev Shabbat   –   7:30 p.m.

Saturday, Nov.11, , Shabba – 10 a.m.

Saturday, Nov.r 11, Mincha, Ma’ariv, Havdalah –  5 p.m.

 

Following the Havdalah on Saturday, the film, “Paperclips” will be shown.  This film chronicles what began as a lesson about prejudice and then what happened next was a miracle.

Movie-theater-style food concessions will be available for the movie. Free and open to the public, donations are accepted.
