Tips for a Successful Seder 2019
Erev Yom Hashoah with Holocaust Survivor Martin Lowenberg
Wednesday, May 1
7:30 p.m. Service with Lighting of Yom Hashoah Candles
8:00 p.m. Presentation by Martin Lowenberg
The numbers of Holocaust survivors continues to dwindle, and the opportunities to hear them speak will become sadly all too rare. This year, to mark Erev Yom Hashoah, the Beth Israel community has the opportunity to hear Martin Lowenberg, who is a regular speaker at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, to address the congregation. Previous to his presentation, there will be a Yom Hashoah service with special readings and poems led by Rabbi Nadav Caine.
Martin Lowenberg was born in Schenklengsfeld, Germany in 1928 — five years before Adolf Hitler came to power. And that day, Jan. 30, 1933, forever changed Lowenberg’s life. Nazis marched along the streets of Lowenberg’s hometown to celebrate Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor of Germany and burnt down his family’s home. Martin Lowenberg spent his teenage years living in five different concentration camps after his parents and twin brothers were killed. Lowenberg is a regular speaker at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills. According to Collyer Smith, former Rotary Club president, “Martin shares his personal Holocaust story not with rear and hate, but rather through inspiration and hope.”
