Featured Speaker Hershel Greenblat 

Born in the caves of Ukraine, Hershel Greenblat survived the Holocaust because of the resourcefulness and determination of his parents in evading the Nazis. As he states, “It is because of my parents’ unwavering will that we were able to survive the horrors of the Holocaust.” When the family settled in Atlanta, Hershel learned how to become an American as well as an active member of his southern community. Come hear his message.

Jointly sponsored by Eternal Life – Hemshech, the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, and the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum.
