The program to commemorate the Holocaust will feature the documentary film, Space Shuttle Columbia: Mission of Hope, and will introduced by Mr. Courtney Stadd, Director, Washington Operations, for Vector Launch. He will discuss how a heroic Rabbi, who did not survive Bergen-Belsin, managed to create a moment of joy, in the midst of despair, by secretly celebrating the bar mitzvah of a boy to whom he entrusted a little Torah. The film depicts how the fulfillment of that promise powerfully impacted the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia nearly 60 years later. A light dinner will be served. Please RSVP to Wayne Berman.
