לאור חומרת המצב והידוק התקנות, שהות במנייני בית הכנסת תוגבל לקבוצות של 10 לכל היותר בהתאם להוראות הדין. נבקש את הבנתכם וציות לבקשות הגבאים/ממוני הקורונה אם אתם מגיעים לקבוצה "מלאה" כשינחו אתכם להצטרף לקבוצה אחרת ו/או להתרחק מקבוצה מסוימת. נדגיש שוב כי עטיה נכונה של מסיכות (קרי, מעל גשר האף) ושמירת מרחק של לפחות 2 מטר – חובה! אנו מודים לכם על שיתוף הפעולה וההבנה.

  • ESRA Rehovot invites you to an online talk via zoom on “Jews Who Fought for Hitler,” by John Simon, Tuesday, 19 January at 19:30.Only one European combatant country emerged from WWII without any of its Jewish citizens being persecuted at home or deported to the Third Reich’s concentration or extermination camps. How and why the first Jews arrived in that cold and dark corner of the continent has no parallel in the annals of the diaspora, nor does the story of how openly Jewish soldiers in Finland’s army fought under German command in WWII… and survived. John Simon has written the first comprehensive history of Finland’s Jewish community, Strangers in a Stranger Land. This book was short-listed for History Book of the Year. He will share with us this significant but neglected part of Holocaust history. Cost: ESRA Members NIS 25; Non-members NIS 35. Registration: Through Booking Office at 09-9508371 (ext 2) or write to bookingoffice@esra.org.il, or online at www.esra.org.il. A zoom invitation will be sent to your email address after your payment is processed. All proceeds support the ESRA Rehovot's after-school program for children at risk.
