the Center will speak on the dangers of present-day anti-Semitism and the worldwide surge in Holocaust denial,
following a live update from the infamous Geneva Conference (Durban II) by Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate
The program will also include a special tribute to the music of composers persecuted by the Nazis, featuring
