Speaking Event: SHABBAT CONNECT LUNCHEON
SevensDays® will mark the fourth anniversary of the shootings which took place at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom in 2014 with a special "Shabbat Connect" event - by welcoming the Jewish Sabbath, we hope to commemorate the lives of Dr. William Corporon, Reat Underwood and Terri LaManno. Additionally, given its proximity to Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we will honor those lost during the Holocaust. The event will feature Yvette Manessis Corporon, cousin to Bill Corporon and Reat Underwood, who will share the story of how her grandmother helped to hide and save a Jewish family on the Greek Island, Erikousa, during the Holocaust. Just days before the shootings that took her cousin's lives, Yvette was reunited with the descendants of the Jewish-Greek family in Israel. Yvette's story is chronicled in her new book entitled Something Beautiful Happened: A Story of Survival and Courage in the Face of Evil.
