Holocaust Center

The Holocaust Resource Center of Temple Judea is dedicated to:


The memory of six million Jewish men, women and children who were murdered in ghettos, concentration and death camps; survivors who rose from the ashes of Auschwitz, Belzec, Chmelno, Majdaek, Sobibor and Treblink; the “Righteous of the Nations” who risked their lives to save Jews from the hands of the Nazi murderers; and Allied soldiers who destroyed Nazi tyranny.

The mission of the Center is to educate young and old on the evils of prejudice, to teach the lessons of the Holocaust and to combat ignorance, hatred and violence.

P1030238Temple Judea of Manhasset Holocaust Resource Center’s Adopt A Survivor Program brings together children in the greater New York Region with Holocaust Survivors, where they interview and interact with each other  The objective of this program is to transfer the life experiences of a Holocaust survivor to an “adopter” by taking a joint journey through the life of the survivor. By this personal journey the adopter becomes one with the survivor, absorbing his life, spirit and soul. He will be able to represent the survivor and tell his story with accuracy and feeling to any audience for two or more generations.  Many of our Adopters, are art students who express their learning, emotional connection and inspiration through their artwork, which will memorialize the holocaust in perpetuity.  Please view a sampling of their artwork below and please support Temple Judea and the Holocaust Resource Center in maintaining these programs.


The Center is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm; Friday from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm; Sundays and evenings by appointment; and closed Saturdays. Special considerations are made to accommodate group visits.
