Service Project Spotlight:
Emma Peretz

Emma celebrated her Bat Mitzvah at Temple Beth Am in May, 2009.  Last fall Emma volunteered in our Museum - greeting visitors, meeting survivors, and helping group tours.

Emma became so engaged with the significance of educating others about the Holocaust, she completed a video interview of a survivor. 

At Emma's request, we uploaded the interviews to a web page about her service project where she asked her invited guests to make donations to the museum in lieu of gifts.
