Survivor and Author, Rabbi Joseph Polak Reading at Congregation Eitz Chayim

Rabbi Joseph Polak, an infant survivor of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, presented a dramatic reading from his book “After The Holocaust, The Bells Still Ring,” on May 1 at Congregation Eitz Chayim, 136 Magazine Street, Cambridge.

The book, with a foreword by Elie Wiesel, won the 2015 National Jewish Book Award in the category of Biography/Autobiography. Those who attended experienced a unique opportunity to hear Rabbi Polak, BU Hillel Rabbi Emeritus and his wife, Reizel, and son, Yankel, engage in a dramatic reading of ‘Tanya’, the only fictional chapter in the book written as a play.

A book signing and Q & A followed the presentation. This event was co-hosted by the Congregation and The Kesher School at Eitz Chayim.
