Please join us for this moving program with candle lighting, speakers, singing, and prayers. www.alpertjcc.org for more information. Mr. George Greenwald will be speaking on his experience in Hungary and Czechoslovakia before, during, and after the Holocaust. George, a former Orange County resident, was born in 1936 in Kosice, Czechoslovakia. Along with his mother, Edith, he narrowly escaped being sent to a concentration camp by the invading Germans. George currently resides in Eugene, Oregon, and is now a sculptor. The memories imprinted during his childhood still influence his thinking about the world and shape the visions in his art. His work has been compared to modernists such as Henry Moore and Allan Houser.

The quality of education has gone down. People should have choice as to the schools (public, private or parochial) where they wish to send their kids to. Education doesn’t need more money; it needs more competition…..namely Vouchers. Empower the parents not the teacher unions. Sanford Kahn, Candidate for Congress, Calif. 47th District
