Date: January 11, 2015
Leaving 9:00am from KE
Filled with hope, humanity and
humor, Wiesenthal is the riveting true story of Simon Wiesenthal, an
ordinary man who did extraordinary things. Nicknamed the "Jewish
James Bond," he devoted his life to bringing more than 1,100 Nazi war
criminals to justice. Intelligent, funny, flawed and noble, Wiesenthal
was a universal hero. His unbelievable dedication and tenacity over
decades is honored in this play, which gives equal weight to his wisdom
and wit during his long, purposeful life.
Our trip includes: Coach Bus to NYC to/from Kol Emet; boxed breakfast;
snack; ticket to the show. There will be time for sightseeing,
shopping, and lunch on your own.
