This November 9-10 marks the 82nd anniversary of the violent anti-Jewish pogroms, which took place throughout Germany, annexed Austria, and the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia. On Monday, November 9, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., Stanlee Stahl, JFR’s Executive Vice President, will be presenting at the Baltimore Jewish Council’s virtual Kristallnacht program. The program will screen the JFR award-winning documentary Footsteps of My Father. The documentary tells the story of Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds. Pastor Chris Edmonds, the son of Roddie Edmonds, will also participate in the program. To register, visit www.baltjc.org/kristallnacht.
The 2021 JFR Advanced Seminar will be a virtual program on Zoom.

As we give thanks this year, let us remember to thank and take care of the men and women who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust – non-Jews who refused to be passive in the face of the evil they witnessed. Now elderly and in financial need, help us to make their Christmas holiday a little brighter. Each December the JFR raises funds to send a special award to our rescuers for the purchase of food a Christmas. Our goal this year is $25,000 – help us reach this goal. Please consider making a gift of $36.00. Click here to donate now.
