The Gottdenker Remembrance Gallery

 

This project preserves the stories of our congregation’s Holocaust survivors, as a lasting memorial within the walls of our synagogue.

(זכר ימות עולם בינו שנות דור ודור שאל אביך ויגדך זקניך ויאמרו לך (דברים לבז

Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father and he will recount it; thy elders, and they will tell you.

To be a Jewish community that looks to the future, we must know our past. We must preserve the testimony of those who have brought us to the present. These memories are unique to the experiences of the men and women who lived them. Yet, in choosing to read and internalize them, these stories become a part of us. We carry these lessons as a part of our own identities. These memories and these people are a part of who we are as Jews.

Some of these stories are extended and detailed; some are condensed and general.

(אחד המרבה ואחד הממעיט ובלבד שיכוון לבו לשמים”. (ברכות י”ז”

Whether long or short, what matters is that one’s heart is toward heaven.

Let us remember – let us create a world aware of mankind’s capacity for good and for ill – let us work for a world that chooses to do good.
