The Northern New Jersey Holocaust Memorial and Education Committee hosts its inaugural capital campaign meeting and dessert reception on Saturday, December 10, at 8 p.m., at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck.
The group has worked to perpetuate the memory of the Holocaust. It presented plans in March for a Holocaust memorial to be built on the Teaneck Municipal Green and was granted final approval by the Teaneck Township Council. The project is unique in that there is no other Holocaust memorial in the county that will feature both a place to memorialize victims and offer a multilevel educational program, which is being planned in cooperation with the Teaneck Library.
The December 10 program will include introductory remarks by Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin, followed by a presentation from Alan Hantman, an architect and designer of the Holocaust memorial. Dr. Tamara Freeman, scholar and musicologist, will perform on her 1935 Joseph Bausch viola, which was rescued from the Holocaust.
Funds raised will benefit the construction of the memorial. For information, email Steve@foxmarketing.com.
