Timed to coincide with Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Beyond Never Again, a six-part course about the Holocaust, will premiere in more than 300 locations worldwide, including Cedarhurst. Created by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), the world’s largest network of adult education, Beyond Never Again has won support from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Yad Vashem, and more than 300 centers and institutes devoted to studying the Holocaust around the world.

Envisioned as a journey into the intense realm of meaning, Beyond Never Again examines the universal themes that the Holocaust forces us to confront, such as the nature of good and evil, and how empathy and conscience may be nurtured. The course is formulated as a series of facilitated discussions that will enable participants to articulate their personal responses to the Holocaust, and provides relevant angles on some of life’s most difficult questions pertaining to faith and suffering.

Starting on April 28 at Chabad of The Five Towns, Beyond Never Again will be held for six consecutive Wednesdays from 8:15 to 9:30 p.m., and is expected to draw more than 50 local students to its dynamic text-based and audio-visual classes.
