News & Announcements

jprinzonlineJOIN US FOR LBT'S JEWISH MOVIE NIGHT Tuesday, July 28 at 7:00pm as we screen the film:  “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not be Silent.”  In 1930s Berlin the rights of Jews were systematically stripped away. A young rabbi named Joachim Prinz refused to be silent.  He worked to bolster the self-esteem of the German Jews and saved many lives by encouraging emigration before WWII.  Expelled by the Nazis in 1937, Prinz came to the U.S. where democracy had supposedly triumphed over bigotry and hatred, but was appalled by the racism against African Americans.  As Rabbi of Temple B'nai Abraham and as President of the American Jewish Congress, he became a leader of the civil rights movement.  He worked to organize the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and spoke before Martin L. King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.  Please let us know you're attending in an email to:   ($10 per person / including refreshments)
