A Journey into the Holocaust

A documentary film about the Holocaust like no other.

This film by first-time filmmaker Paul Bachow is a detailed and deeply personal exploration into genocide and how something this atrocious happened, and continues to happen again and again – even in modern times. Bachow, traveled around the world and tapped into a vast knowledge base of historians, psychology practitioners, and data derived from countless interviews with experts from around the world.

Facts are corroborated and weaved together with first-hand accounts of Holocaust survivors. With only 6 U.S. states mandating Holocaust education, Bachow’s goal is that this film becomes an educational tool in schools for generations to come.

Educators, if interested, please visit the website for access to the film.

AIPAC Policy Conference 2015

94 Maidens author/activist Rhonda Fink-Whitman attended her first AIPAC conference and she describes how uplifting, encouraging, and motivating it was!

Being in the same room as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and hearing him speak was a dream come true!  From Rabbi Delcau’s spiritual Havdalah service which kicked off our event to watching Bibi’s historic speech from inside the Capitol with “Team Temple Judea” it was a memorable and enlightening experience all the way!  Of the many things I discovered about Israel’s relationship with the US, the most important take away for me was that we are not alone in our love and support of the Jewish state.  Best of all, upon returning, I had the honor and pleasure of teaching my Confirmation Academy students everything I learned and having them conduct mock “lobby” efforts of their own.  The students enjoyed it immensely and said they were inspired to be future leaders of the Jewish community who will stand for Israel!  Some even asked if they could join us at AIPAC next year!  L’dor vador!” ~ Rhonda
