A few days ago, I had the pleasure of speaking at Beth El Synagogue in Margate, New Jersey. The Richard Stockton College Holocaust Resource Center, one of our Centers of Excellence, was screening the film Irena Sendler: In the Name of Their Mothers at the synagogue, and I introduced the film. Having met Irena Sendler, a beloved rescuer who the JFR supported for many years, I was able to speak about the incredible person that she was (she passed away in 2008 at the age of 98). After the film I took questions from the audience. The screening was very well attended, and I was thrilled to see a number of our Lerner Fellows there.
