Connect2 Summer Social 2016


 JCC of Greater Coney Island’s Connect2 program is so grateful to Assemblyman Dov Hikind for helping the Holocaust survivors combat social isolation and bring in the Shavuout Holiday with Simcha (happiness) and hope.

The center was decorated with beautiful floral decorations and flowers in honor of the Shavuout holiday. We danced and sang together to beautiful live music. However, Assemblyman Hikind’s visit was an extra “shot of adrenaline” needed for these survivors to feel validated and remembered in a real way.
As a son of an Auschwitz survivor , Dov Hikind assured the group that he came to see all of them and tell them that, “yes, our people are not having it easy in Israel or around the world at this time, but we are still strong and amazing.”

May his mother’s neshama (soul) be extra uplifted today on her Yartzeit
