Adult Education Movie:  “RAISE THE ROOF!”  Sunday, April 15, 4pm

On Holocaust Memorial Sunday, April 15th, we’ll honor the Jews of Europe as they lived, with the showing of the award-winning and much acclaimed film, “Raise the Roof”.  Poland, home to the world’s largest Jewish community before WWII, was the location of the magnificent “wooden synagogues” of the Yiddish-speaking world, completely destroyed by Nazi Germany.

“Raise the Roof” documents the enormously heartening, remarkably successful world-wide effort to meticulously rebuild one of these wooden synagogues!  “What a spectacular tribute to a vanished and now partially recovered world.”  –Deborah Lipstadt, Holocaust Historian & Author

“…The best vengeance against evildoers is to restore the beauty that they thought they had destroyed forever.”—Boston Globe

“Raise the Roof” is an 85-minute lively documentary, in English
