Sauvage to discuss latest film at annual Holocaust lecture

Sauvage to discuss latest film at annual Holocaust lecture

THE parents of documentary filmmaker Pierre Sauvage, the speaker at the tenth annual Fred Marcus Memorial Holocaust Lecture, 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 28, were among the 5,000 Jews saved by villagers in the area of LeChambon, France during WW II. Sauvage was born there. His personal experiences have naturally piqued his interest in the Holocaust and, in particular, the subject of rescuers.

Following the success of his award-winning film, “Weapons of the Spirit,” which Sauvage showed at the 2004 Marcus Lecture, Sauvage founded the LeChambon Foundation.

His next film was about Peter Bergson, one of the few peoplewho spoke out in the US about what was happening in Europe in the 1940s.

Rabbi Klein: serving up spirituality in the lunchroom

Rabbi Klein: serving up spirituality in the lunchroomThe day after Yom Kippur, while Jewish Denver was still in a post-repentance stupor, DAT Minyan spiritual leader Rabbi Asher Klein arrived at the IJN in exceptional, buoyant form. Twenty-four hours ago he fasted, prayed and beseeched G-d’s forgiveness with his congregation in a crowded multipurpose room at DAT. This morning he smiles the giddy smile of a new father (for the fourth time). The only time fatigue makes an appearance is when Klein mentions receiving an accounting “decree” fro...

Steinberg sees a bright future for West Side

Steinberg sees a bright future for West SideA WORD of warning: Don’t tell Rabbi Tzvi Steinberg that Denver’s West Side is a Jewish ghost town. He’ll set you straight on that point, and quickly. Earlier this year, after the rabbi had already agreed to take the pulpit of Denver’s Congregation Zera Abraham — the last functional synagogue standing on the West Side — he overheard a conversation between two other people. One of those speaking, who knew that Rabbi Steinberg had previously run a Jewish hospice, laughed and said tha...
