Join 3GNY as we commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

We will be featuring guest speaker Hanna Wechsler, Holocaust survivor, wife, mother and grandmother. Hanna's journey began in a small town in Poland that took her to Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Germany, Israel and eventually America. Hanna, along with her parents and other family members, were sent to Auschwitz. Miraculously, five members survived, including both of her parents.

She will share her story of survival as well as the stories of those individuals who hid family members. For more than 30 years, Hanna has educated others about the Holocaust. In her recently published book "In Spite of it All," Hanna tells a story not just of survival but of rebirth. In the face of adversity, one can persevere and prevail!

To hear more of Hanna's life before, during, and after the war, please join us on January 26th.

You are also invited to attend optional Shabbat services which begin at 6:30 PM

Dinner is kosher.

Cost: $55 until 1/21/2018, $65 after.

Please email events@3gnewyork.org if there are any dietary restrictions.

All proceeds go directly to Holocaust education through our WEDU program.

Circle Series: Godwin's law: where the conversation begins?

Circle Series: Godwin's law: where the conversation begins?

  • Congregation Emanu-El, 4th Floor (Leventritt room) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Today’s political discourse has seen a rise in references to the Holocaust.

"Godwin's Law" asserts that as an online discussion progresses, the greater the chance of a comparison involving Hitler, the Nazis or the Holocaust.  From Trump, to refugees, to hate crimes, Godwin’s Law is applied with increasing frequency.  Nazi or Holocaust references aren't just relegated to online discussions, but have become talking points made by pundits and politicians.

  • Is this an affirmation of Holocaust memory or an abuse of it?  
  • Where is the line to be drawn and by whom?
  • As guardians of our family's history and legacy how can we ensure Holocaust memory is not abused?

Join Alexis Fishman and Dan Brooks as we discuss this important topic

3GNY Guided Exhibit Tour - Museum of Jewish Heritage

Join a unique guided tour and social gathering at the Museum of Jewish Heritage

We'll grab drinks afterwards at a nearby bar

Please be on time as the tour will begin promptly at 6:35p

Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann

Operation Finale documents one of the great spy thrillers of the 20th century, examines the enormity of the crimes committed during the Nazi regime, and calls on us to consider the meaning of justice and accountability.

The Nazi responsible for the murder of millions of innocent people may well have lived out his days in Argentina as “Ricardo Klement” - until fate, a Holocaust survivor, and Israel’s foreign intelligence service intervened.

Explore recently declassified artifacts and immersive multimedia presentations that reveal the secret history behind the capture, extradition, and trial of one of the world’s most notorious war criminals.

New Dimensions in Testimony Installation

New Dimensions in Testimony℠ is an interactive testimony installation. The first of its kind in the New York area, New Dimensions in Testimony℠ allows visitors to have “virtual conversations” with Holocaust survivors Pinchas Gutter and Eva Schloss. Visitors ask questions and lifelike projections of Pinchas and Eva answer those questions in real time—offering personal reflections about life before, during, and after the Holocaust. Specialized recording and display technologies and next-generation natural language processing revolutionize the ways we can communicate and learn from each other across time and space.
