    On Monday, Jan.21st we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.   It is a day to not only celebrate his life and dream but a day to reflect on the American ideals of freedom and justice for all.  Dr. King played a significant role in the Civil Rights Movement along with many other leaders who helped shape the history of our nation.

    Dr. King once said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."  and "Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education."  These messages are timeless and reflect the values we should uphold each day.

    Two weeks from now, on January 23 the Holocaust Museum will host their annual commemoration of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day - a day when we honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and the millions of other victims of Nazi persecution. The United Nations has designated this day of remembrance to be held each year on January 27, marking the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

    This year the museum will honor the victims and the survivors of the Holocaust by learning more about one local family's legacy of resistance and heroism. 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.

    Please see Ms. Balducci or your social studies teacher for more information.  

     

    Remember to always work hard and be kind!
