Join the 3GNY community for its Spring Shabbat dinner at the Sutton Place Synagogue. Upon entering the lobby, you will notice the encased Torah scroll. This scroll (#1033) is one of over 1500 Torah scrolls that were gathered together in Prague from the synagogues of Bohemia and Moravia which were desolated by the Nazi official in charge of the Czech “Protectorate.” Its existence is witness to the “Eternity of Israel.” This Torah scroll has been assigned to Sutton Place Synagogue and is on permanent loan by the Memorial Scrolls Trust, London, England.
You are also invited to attend optional Shabbat services which begin at 6:15 PM.
Dinner is kosher.

Special Guest Speaker:
Lillian Berliner was born in 1928 in Cluj, Romania. Her homeland was occupied by the Germans in 1944 and she was transported to Auschwitz with her family. She was liberated in Bergen Belsen in 1945 and came to the U.S. two years later as a war bride. Lillian is a widow with two married sons and two grandchildren. She lives in Queens, New York, and continues to inspire everyone who knows her with her optimism, light, love and perseverance.
Featured Speaker, Denise Krupit:
Denise was born in Alsace, the eastern part of France near the German/Swiss border, and was the second of three girls. Her mother was born in Hungary to Polish parents and emigrated to Alsace, her father was born in Poland, moved to Hungary, and then to moved to France where he met and married Denise’s mother. Both her parents were naturalized French citizens.
During the war, Denise was hidden with her sisters for two years in a Catholic women’s residence in Normandy. Only the Mother Superior and one other nun knew they were Jewish. Her parents remained in Paris and were hidden in a maid’s room for 2 years. They were reunited in September 1944 after Paris was liberated.
