The Jewish and Unitarian Universalist communities are co- sponsoring a program marking Yom haShoah/Holocaust Memorial Day at the synagogue. The final version of the film, “Two Who Dared: The Sharps’ War,” will be shown, followed by a memorial service and a potluck vegetarian dinner. The film is about the Sharps, a UU minister and his wife from Massachusetts, who helped rescue thousands of Jewish children from Europe during World War II. They were the parents of Martha Sharp Joukowsky, a part time resident of St. Croix and friend of our Fellowship. (To allay any confusion: This is an “in-house” program, for members of the Jewish and UU communities and our guests. A longer version of the movie will also be shown [without accompanying memorial service], with invitations extended to the wider community, at the St Croix Reformed Church on the following Sunday evening.)
Sunday, April 7 at 5:30 PM.
