Da Annette (L.A.) per i nostri amici:
I thought you would be interested to see the Film program and Dinner scheduled in a Conservative Jewish Synagogue for the remembrance of April 24th.
I was there last night watching the movie and found it very interesting when Michael Hagopian himself raised the issue that “Israel for its own relationship is not recognizing the genocide” the Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis called it a “moral and sacred duty to recognize and honor the genocide victims”.
There is an “Armenian Shabbat” scheduled on Friday too.
