Brenda Weisman and Amy Edelstein, the daughter and granddaughter of Aron Bielski of the Bielski Partisans, will present the story of these incredible fighters who saved over one thousand of their fellow Jews during the Holocaust.

    The event will begin at 7pm at the New City Jewish Center on Jan. 23rd.  All are welcome to attend and honor the memory of the victims by keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive and by deepening our knowledge of this important history.
