Erev Tisha B'Av (Saturday, August 10th, 2019, 7pm)

posted Jun 28, 2019, 10:53 AM by Ezrath Israel   [ updated Jul 15, 2019, 10:45 AM ]

Service and Film: The Presence of Their Absence, the story of Fred Zaidman, a Los Angeles son of Holocaust survivors, on a journey of discovery to trace his roots and “inherited trauma.” Talk back with the Director, Donna Kanter, Q& A, and food suitable for the holiday after the service.

The Presence of Their Absence follows Fred Zaidman, the son of Holocaust survivors, on a journey to trace his inherited trauma.  Armed with determination and scant clues from his late parents, he ventures into the unknown.  With helpers in Poland, Israel, and Germany, and an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta who guides him through a cemetery in Poland – Fred finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah, unshackles his pain, and through the puzzle of his ancestral past reconstructs his future.

More information about the film is on our website:
