About 50 Gombiners and friends from the U.S., U.K., Poland, Europe, and Israel participated in a ½ hour virtual tour of the iconic Gombin Synagogue; Bernie Guyer led the tour. That Synagogue was at the center of the town’s Jewish life for more than 200 years. Photographs, the scale model of the synagogue, and an excerpt of the virtual video tour of the Synagogue’s interior are shown; Anita Greenbaum Brush reads from her father’s memoire of Yom Kippur in Gombin. The tour concludes with renderings of the proposed memorial plaque installation that is currently pending approval.
Please join Gombiners from all over the world for a Virtual Shabbat on Friday, October 2, 2020 (Sukkot) at 5pm (Eastern time). Have your kiddush cup, candle sticks and challah ready, whether in your sukkah or kitchen. A lay-member of the Board will lead you in informal Shabbat blessings and song.
Guest Speaker: Karina von Tippelskirch, Associate Professor of German and German Program Coordinator Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, Syracuse University, authority on the works of Rajzel Zychlinsky and European authors who fled persecution in the past century.
