Six Million Steps

The Israeli American Council (IAC) would like to invite the JCC community to take part in Six Million Steps, a unique international effort to preserve and perpetuate the memory of the Holocaust and bring attention to the alarming resurgence of antisemitism in the US and around the world.

During the period of March 21 through April 11, you can help spread the word to as many people as possible and encourage your community members to walk or run, noting the number of steps they have taken in solidarity on our website. Also, share photos or videos on their social media accounts using the hashtag #6MILLIONSTEPS (or emailed to activism@israeliamerican.org).

For more information, contact mayat@jvalley.org.

Make your own Shabbat Spice Blend to help enhance your Friday night meals. Download PDF. Also Look on our website for links to Shabbat rituals: https://www.beth-david.org/shabbat-rituals/

Songs of Remembrance: A Multi-Genre Musical Celebration of Yom HaShoah

Conversation with Boris Kapilevich, Holocaust survivor:


https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYsceCprj4tE9eKpQHeMpMGoXhskAeIDHCG


In the past 25 years, Boris Kapilevich, an 85 years young Holocaust survivor, lives here-in San Jose, with his spouse Larisa Blank.

Boris was born in Minsk- Belorussia, and when he was five, his happy childhood ended with the occupation of Minsk by the brutal German soldiers. In his book- SURVIVOR, Boris describes the life of Jews in the Ghetto with the constant fear of being killed by Germans and Russian policemen. Boris and his mother survived the Holocaust, but his older brother, who saved Boris’s life, couldn’t save his own, and was killed in one of the pogroms in the Ghetto. By chance, Boris and his mother escaped from the Ghetto, and after a long search for partisans, they found refuge in one of the Partisan’s detachments.

During the war, Boris’s father was in the army, and after the war, he reunited with the family.


Join us for a heart to heart conversation with this amazing survivor.

Palestinian Refugees and the War of Return (Zoom)
The talk will present the origins of the idea of a "right of return" for Palestinian Refugees, and argue that this Palestinian demand for a “right of return” has no legal or moral basis. For the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians to end with peace, Palestinians must come to terms with the fact that there will be no "right of return." The world has to recognize this for the good of Israelis and Palestinians alike.

Jewish Book Discussion Group

The Chosen Wars: How Judaism Became an American Religion, by Steven Weisman, led by Steve Levin

Weisman tells the dramatic history of how Judaism redefined itself in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries -- the personalities that fought each other and shaped its evolution and, crucially, the force of the American dynamic that transformed this ancient religion. These great changes did not come without argument. The Chosen Wars tells the stories of the colorful rabbis and activists who defined American Judaism and whose disputes divided it into Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox branches. Isaac Mayer Wise, Mordecai Noah, David Einhorn, Rebecca Gratz, and Isaac Lesser are some of the major figures.

Studio Shabbat (Zoom)

Studio Shabbat is an opportunity to experience Shabbat differently. 

A studio is a space to try things, to experiment, and to be creative.  On Studio Shabbat Friday nights, we will pilot new ways to celebrate Shabbat.  Each Studio Shabbat will enable us to engage differently, whether through music, meditation, or the use of theater techniques.  Our hope is to provide interesting and meaningful Shabbat experiences that will speak to the diversity of our community.  We value your participation and welcome your feedback.
