World War II Theme at Interfaith CommUNITY




Interfaith CommUNITY Spiritual Center and The Shrine of Holy Wisdom will co-host a special event with San Francisco Bay Area storyteller Marty Brounstein, author of Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust, at 7 p.m., February 2.

Brounstein will share the true story of courage and compassion about Frans and Mien Wijnakker, a Christian couple in the Netherlands who, despite extreme personal risk, saved the lives of more than two dozen Jews during World War II. He will also reveal his meaningful personal connection to this story and its heroes in this inspirational storytelling presentation. Fr. Jorge Eagar, of The Shrine of Holy Wisdom, will make his collection of relics from Christian dissidents against the Nazi regime available for viewing.

The WWII series will continue with a concert, American Music: WWII, at 7 p.m., February 9, performed by Tony Keyes and Jim Sorensen. Interfaith CommUNITY Spiritual Center welcomes all peaceful forms of cultural, spiritual and lifestyle diversity.

Admission is by love offering. Location: 952 E. Baseline Rd., Ste. 102, in the Paragon Business Center, Mesa. For more information, visit Interfaith-Community.org.
