5th Annual Holocaust Education Program in Memory of David Shapell z”l

Feb 19, 2020

This week the faculty and students of Shapell’s and Midreshet Rachel benefited from an extraordinary evening Holocaust Education Program commemorating the fifth yahrzeit of Mr. David Shapell z”l. The keynote speaker was Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, former Chief Rabbi of the State of Israel and current president of Yad Vashem. He reflected on the memory of the Holocaust that he strongly believes will continue for generations, and shared a powerful story that demonstrated our ultimate victory over those who wished to destroy us.

Rabbi Lau was followed by Rabbi Shaya Karlinsky who reflected both on the life of Mr. Shapell and the importance of Holocaust education. Moshe Moskowitz then spoke about the amazing experiences of his parents, both of whom demonstrated remarkable heroism as they survived the Holocaust.
