Family Fun Day at ICP

The February Family Fun day  was a well-organized huge hit!  We showered all our interfaith spirit and love onto about 10 people, young and old.   Board member Gerry Caprio provided music for the singalong, assisting leaders Marla Kolman and Mary Zamboukos.  They did a fun project about the Golden Rule,  made peace flags and shakers like last time, and had a singalong.

The Family Fun Day takes place on the last Sunday of every month from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the Presidio Chapel, 130 Fisher Circle, Presidio, San Francisco. Come and join us, and bring the whole family!

Yom HaShoah: Community Holocaust Remembrance Day

Congregation Shir Hadash is proud to host the Community Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial) Service on Sunday April 23rd. The program will begin at 6:30 pm with a presentation by Eric Kay who, as a child, was rescued by the Kindertransport. There will be a slide show of art work and poetry by students from Fisher Middle School, the Harker School, St. Andrews, St. Mary’s, Yavneh, Granada School and the Congregational Religious Schools. Finally Rabbi Jennie Rosenn, Vice President of HIAS will be with us to offer reflections on the current situation and a viewing of segments of their film “Refugee Children”.

A Yom HaShoah memorial service will follow with the lighting of candles by survivors and Second and Third Generation families and the participation of the community’s rabbis.

This program will be especially meaningful to adults and children in middle school and high school. The entire community is welcome so please invite your friends and neighbors.
