Almost Chanukah presented by netivot shalom and be'chol lashon, saturday, december 11, Berkley Ca,


This day-long program is inspired by the memory of the remarkable inmates of the Terezín Ghetto and comprises a series of talks derived directly from the lectures conceived and presented by residents themselves—many of whom were professors and scholars. It is emblematic of their will to learn, thrive and retain some semblance of normalcy—against impossible odds.

A rarefied group of world-class experts will reinterpret lectures given at Terezín on a range of topics, including:

Randy Cohen, former New York Times “Ethicist” and Jane Eisner, Editor of The Forward, on “Jewish Ethics”

Rabbi Capers Funnye, Associate Director of Be'chol Lashon and spiritual leader of Beth Shalom B'nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation in Chicago and Michelle Obama’s cousin, on "Travels to African Jews".

Judy Gold, award-winning comedian, actress and playwright and Sam Hoffman, founder of, on “Jewish Humor”

Milette Gaifman, PhD, Assistant Professor of Art and Classics at Yale and grand-niece of Terezín inmate Karel Fleischmann, on “Greek Culture”

Lisa Peschel, PhD, MFA, ground-breaking scholar presenting a lively performance in word and song based on works written at Terezín.
