The Chabad of Suffern is excited to host an event with Holocaust survivor and tailor-to-the-president Martin Greenfield, who will be interviewed by Geraldo Rivera.
Mr. Greenfield is one of the world’s most respected and accomplished tailors. Since emigrating from the former Czechoslovakia to America in 1947, he dressed the famous of D.C., including Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and celebrities Leonardo DiCaprio and Jimmy Fallon. But his success follows tremendous adversity. As a teenager, he survived two horrific years in concentration camps during the Holocaust, and lost his parents and siblings at the hands of the Nazis. In his memoir “Measure of a Man,” Greenfield describes how an encounter with an SS guard at Auschwitz led him to pick up a needle and thread for the first time, and how tragedy taught him the power of clothes. Please join us as we listen to a first-hand account of the life of Martin Greenfield.
The event will take place at the Lafayette Theater in Suffern on October 18. The meet and greet cocktail hour will begin at 4 p.m. and the interview will start at 5:30 p.m.
$25 advanced paid reservation. $36 at the door. $15 student rate. $90 Includes VIP ticket to lecture and the meet and greet.
