Holocaust museum benefit in November

The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education’s annual benefit brunch is set for Sunday, November 4, at 10:30 a.m. It will honor Alan Moskin. Stefany and Simon Bergson are the Elie Wiesel Memorial award recipients, and Jake Ehrenreich will give a celebratory tribute. The brunch is at the View on the Hudson in Piermont.

Alan Moskin, a museum trustee, is a member of its speakers’ bureau. Since last year’s benefit brunch, he has been the featured speaker nearly 30 times, and he has reached more than 5,000 people. He talks about his experiences as a G.I. in Patton’s Third Army and as a liberator of several concentration camps.

Stefany and Simon Bergson, longtime museum supporters, are being honored for their commitment to commemorating the Holocaust and to teaching people about it. They have been dedicated to helping build the new state-of-the-art museum, which is scheduled to open next year.

Jake Ehrenreich, a musician, author, and playwright, is featured in the film “The Last Laugh” with Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner. A Brooklyn-born child of Holocaust survivors, he is best known as star and creator of his musical, “A Jew Grows in Brooklyn,” which is also a bestselling book.

All proceeds will benefit Holocaust and tolerance education programs. For information, call (845) 574-4099, email HolocaustRCC@gmail.com, or go to holocauststudies.org.
