CELIA & VICTOR CYNAMON HOLOCAUST MUSEUM NEWS
Victor Cynamon, Chairman
Recently I have had the pleasure of encountering generosity,
compassion and empathy in one man named Scott Scharg. Scott
exemplifies what it means to be a mensch. After hearing Holocaust
survivors speak, and learning of the horrors they endured, he decided
to take action. He has donated a substantial amount of money to our
shul in honor our survivors. Clearly, people like Scott are rare, and we
are so fortunate to count him as a member of our temple community.
He tells me that he is proud of the many accomplishments we have
made at ATJC and knows there are more to come. Indeed. There are
more to come.
Sadly, the greatest enemy of the Holocaust survivors is time. There is
simply not enough time to educate the world or even our own
community about the Holocaust. There are Holocaust related projects
that demand our attention and we worry that we will not have the
time to tend to them. Every time I see an empty seat in the sanctuary where a Holocaust survivor
previously sat, I am reminded of how much is lost forever.
So let us enjoy the company of one another and let us be proud of members like Scott. Scott will
be hosting a luncheon for all survivors when Professor Allen Dershowitz comes to speak. All
survivors will be the guests of Scott and survivors will be honored. All you have to do is make your
reservation early. It promises to be a glorious afternoon, so please join us. Be proud of what we
have accomplished and what we will accomplish. If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Scott,
please do so at the luncheon, you will no doubt be as impressed as I have been. This is a man who
exudes sensitivity to Holocaust survivors. Scott makes me proud to be a member of ATJC.
