Many of the Holocaust survivors in our community have had their testimonies that recount their experiences during the Holocaust recorded by the USC Shoah Foundation. JCRC's Raab/Goodwin Center and the Jewish Federation of Southern NJ have taken several of these testimonies and made them more personal by adding historical and family photos.
The JCRC of SNJ's Raab/Goodwin Center, will be continuing our Community-Wide Book Club this year as we read and promote, It Could Happen Here: Why America Is Tipping from Hate to the Unthinkable - And How We Can Stop It. by current ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.
Learn about the Raab/Goodwin programs that have made a lasting impact on our community, now and in the future. Survivors, volunteers, and other community members share their stories.
