Orthodox Union Executive Vice President Rabbi Steven Weil will be the Guest Speaker at the Yom Hashoa Commemoration at the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills. The annual event, “Rising From The Ashes” will take place this year on Thursday, April 19 beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the synagogue, 150-05 70 Road in Flushing.

Rabbi Weil will address “The Mesirat Nefesh (Self-Sacrifice) of Jews During The Most Horrific Times.”

Following his speech, the 38-minute version of the internally acclaimed film “Israel Inside” film will be shown. The video, hosted by former Harvard lecturer Dr. Tal Ben Shahar, examines the core character strengths that have enabled Israelis to overcome challenges and turn a barren desert into a flourishing nation.

The program is sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Weintraub in honor of his parents Yosef ben Yitzchok a”h and Chaya bat Yitzchok a”h. David Kallus is Program Chairman.
