Friday, April 21, 8:00 p.m. Rabbi Mark Glickman will speak about his recent book “Stolen Words: The Nazi Plunder of Jewish Books” during Yom HaShoah services, led by Rabbi Rachlis and Cantor Braier. Stolen Words is an epic story about the largest collection of Jewish books in the world—tens of millions of books that the Nazis looted from European Jewish families and institutions. Nazi soldiers and civilians emptied Jewish communal libraries, confiscated volumes from government collections, and stole from Jewish individuals, schools, and synagogues. It is the story of how a free civilization decides what to do with the material remains of a world torn asunder, and how those remains connect survivors with their past. Rabbi Glickman, son of University Synagogue members Ron and Sharon Glickman, has served at congregations in Ohio, Washington State, and Colorado. He is the author of Sacred Treasure—The Cairo Genizah: The Amazing Discoveries of Forgotten Jewish History in an Egyptian Synagogue Attic which he spoke about at University Synagogue in early 2011. University Synagogue member Julie Metz will play the violin during services and University Synagogue member Jack Pariser will speak about a Holocaust memory program in Poland. Sponsored by Tom and Andra Ellingson.
