Special Interfaith Program

An Evening with Storyteller and Author Marty Brounstein




The Shrine of Holy Wisdom and the Hillel Jewish Student Center at Arizona State University are pleased to host a special interfaith program with Marty Brounstein, author of Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust, on Saturday, January 19, at 6:30 p.m. at the Shrine of Holy Wisdom, in Tempe. Brounstein brings a true interfaith story of courage, compassion and rescue about a Christian couple in the Netherlands named Frans and Mien Wijnakker who, despite much risk and danger, saved the lives of more than two dozen Jews during the Holocaust and World War II. Brounstein also has a meaningful personal connection to this story, which he reveals in his engaging storytelling presentation.

Brounstein has been on an unexpected journey, now well into its eighth year, in sharing this inspirational story in a variety of venues and 15 other cities beyond his home base of the San Francisco Bay Area. He is back again in the Valley for a speaking series on this story. Book signing will follow the presentation. The event is open to the community and is free, but donations are graciously accepted.

Location: 5025 S. Ash Ave., Ste. B-15, Tempe. For more information, call 480-219-9633 or visit TheShrineOfHolyWisdom.org.
