Yom Hashoah

Monday, April 17 at 5:00 PM at Temple Beth Am

TBA is grateful to welcome Holocaust Museum LA's L'Dough V'Dough program. Participants braid their own challah and reflect on their own family histories and traditions. While the challah bakes, participants will have the honor and privilege of hearing from a Holocaust survivor in our community, Yona Nadelman, ensuring that the lessons and memories of the Holocaust are never forgotten. 

Yona Nadelman was born in Krakow, Poland, and was only five years old when Nazis invaded Poland. Soon after the invasion, she fled eastward with her parents and extended family. Yona was left in the care of her grandparents, when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in 1941. Her grandparents secured false papers and she lived on a farm under this false identity for the rest of the war. After being reunited with her parents, Yona lived in Paris and eventually settled in Los Angeles where she worked as a fashion designer.
