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 JFR is getting ready to send a special award to each of our rescuers for the purchase of food during the Christmas holiday. Rescuers also use this special gift for home heating fuel and medication. It is our collective way of saying thank you and for letting the rescuers know that we remember them. It has been a very difficult year for most, especially for the rescuers who are often living alone. With COVID-19 spiking again in Europe and Eastern Europe many of the rescuers will continue to be alone.
Mark your calendar! Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, December 1, 2020. 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 at 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.
For a donation of $18.00 or more, you can send the JFR Hanukkah eCard to up to 10 email recipients. A JFR eCard is a great way to send Hanukkah wishes to friends and family while at the same time supporting the work of the JFR. Click here to send Hanukkah eCards.
