Holocaust Survivors in San Diego: Our Commitment and Our Responsibility
Michael Hopkins, CEO, Jewish Family Service
Michael Jeser, CEO, Jewish Federation of San Diego County
Hedy Dalin, Director of Care Management/Supporting Older Survivors, Jewish Family Service
Darren Schwartz, CPSO, Jewish Federation of San Diego County
In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, join Jewish Family Service of San Diego and Jewish Federation of San Diego County as we explore the unique and dynamic needs of the 500 Holocaust Survivors who call our community home. The recent pandemic and stay-at-home orders have only deepened the needs of this vulnerable population, especially as they trigger memories of isolation and helplessness. After enduring one of the darkest periods in human history, our community has a responsibility and a commitment to ensure Survivors age with dignity. Join our discussion to learn more about what we can do individually and as a community.
