LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Temple B’nai Abraham family will gather to commemorate Yom HaShoah, the Holocaust Remembrance Day, with a service on Wednesday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m.
Guest speaker Irving Horowitz, son of temple member Rita and the late Morris Horowitz, is on the faculty of the NYU College of Dentistry and recently retired from periodontal practice. Almost alone among their family members, Morris and Rita Horowitz survived the Holocaust, after stays in different labor and detention camps. Irving Horowitz was born just after the war, in the DP camp where his parents met. He and his parents came to New Jersey in the late 1940s, and were part of the Temple B’nai Abraham community from then on. The Horowitz family home was one in which the Holocaust never ceased to dwell.
Irving Horowitz will share his thoughts about the impact his personal Holocaust history has had on his own life’s journey as he grew up, married, raised his own family and moved from academic success to professional achievement.
The community is welcome to attend. For information, call 973-994-2290 or visit www.tbanj.org.
