Jewish Peoplehood
Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) begins at sundown on Monday, April 21. The opportunity to bear witness to and learn from the experiences of Holocaust survivors is a privilege that will soon be gone as we lose the last generation who lived through this period of time. Please join us.
Marin's Virtual Yom Hashoah
 Holocaust Remembrance Day
TONIGHT: Tuesday, April 21 at 5pm.

Music, Poetry, Stories, Collective Remembrance.
Let the light from your Yahrzeit candle join the thousands around the world as we recommit ourselves to recognizing and combatting anti-semitism. The event is presented by the Partners for Jewish Life in Marin: Brandeis Marin, Congregations Kol Shofar and Rodef Sholom, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, and the Osher Marin JCC.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage presents a beautiful trailer for a new documentary, Won't Be Silent, about a long-lost piece of music that renowned composer Wolf Durmashkin wrote in a concentration camp in 1943.

Young singers from HaZamir Choir performed the song at the 2019 Annual Gathering of Remembrance and offer a message of renewed commitment to carry on the memory of the Holocaust and to ensure a better future for all.
The Museum of Tolerance has also created a stunning online immersive exhibit on the life of Anne Frank.
Read through facsimile sheets of her writing, experience a cinematic dramatization of the annex she was hidden in, and hear the emotional responses of exhibit visitors.

Cultural Arts & Trips
Destination: Skagen, Denmark
I am so excited to take you to the northern most tip of Denmark, to a charming fishing village, to one of my favorite museums in the world! In the late 19th-century, Skagen (pronounced “skein” as in “skein of yarn”) became the home to a colony of Scandinavian artists. Inspired by French Realism, the artists found their subjects on the beaches, on the moors, in the cabins of the local fishermen and, of course, in their own familiar surroundings. “The Skagen Painters,” as they were called, included artists such as Peder Severin Krøyer, Anna & Michael Ancher, Viggo Johansen and Christian Krohg.
These early advocates of modern Scandinavian painting were in direct opposition to the traditional academic painting and the Danish Golden Age tradition.

Explore the local museum. Learn more about these masters’ works. Tour highlights of the Museum’s collection.

The Brothers Comatose

Let's chat!
If you happen to be on the marinjcc.org website, you may notice that we're trying out a new way to stay connected with you. This little widget automatically shows up on our webpages in the lower right corner of any page.

During the closure, we'll rarely have a realtime human being there to respond, but we will get your message, and we expect to reply to you within 48 hours.
Feel free to ask a question, leave a comment, or let us know how you're doing (or how we're doing). We want to hear from you.
