Irving Roth Holocaust Resource Center

The Irving Roth 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, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor, and Treblinka; 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. Please view the 3-minute introduction or the entire 42 minute video about our Center and of the history of events leading up to and during the Holocaust.

The Center provides:

  • Lectures by historians, scholars, and educators
  • Testimony by Holocaust survivors
  • Permanent historical exhibits
  • Changing contemporary art exhibits
  • Student art workshops
  • Speakers for schools, civic and religious groups
  • Teacher training programs for all levels

Janusz Korczak

The sculpture in the image to the left, designed by Holocaust Survivor and the first Executive Director of the HRC, Irving Roth z’l, is of Janusz Korczak leading “his” children. In 2017, three different scaled-sized menorahs of “the last journey” were sculpted by renowned artist, Gary Rosenthal, and are available for purchase by calling our office at 516-621-8049.  For a brief introduction to the life of Janusz Korczak, please click here.

 


Adopt A Survivor

Temple Judea of Manhasset Holocaust Resource Center’s Adopt A Survivor Program brings together children in the 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. Through this personal journey, the adopter becomes one with the survivor, absorbing his or her life, spirit, and soul. The adopter 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.


On December 12, we dedicated a new sculpture to the Center’s permanent collection. The sculpture is called “Mishpocheh” and was created and donated by Ben Haber.
