Heartfelt letter from Our Congregant Pam Guttman

Hi Lara-

Thank you for all your help in arranging our visit to the Holocaust
Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County.  Everything went as
planned.  We found our docents very knowledgeable and sensitive as they
led us through the exhibits.  The members of South Baldwin Jewish Center
and their friends who joined us are a mature group who already had a
strong understanding of the Holocaust - yet everyone learned something
new.  The exhibit on issues of modern-day intolerance had great
relevance for us.  We moved through the galleries at a nice pace and no
one felt rushed.  Sharing of memories was encouraged and everyone was

Hearing Mr. Miller's testimony was powerful.  His presentation was clear
and filled with details.  We were all very taken with his description of
his brave and intelligent mother.  How wonderful to see pictures from
his album and have his son share the afternoon with us.

We are all grateful for the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of
Nassau County and the important work you do educating school children,
law enforcement professionals and the general public about racism,
anti-Semitism, intolerance and indifference.

The center is a treasure and we are so glad we came to visit.

This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose.
