Judy Batalion – Young Adult Discussion and Happy Hour
The Young Adult Community at Congregation Emanu-El is honored to host Judy Batalion, author of The Light of Days, which tells the story of young women resistance fighters who smuggled weapons, assassinated Nazis, and sabotaged German supply lines. (Steven Spielberg recently bought the film rights!) Join us for an outdoor happy hour in San Francisco. After you register, the exact location of the event will be sent out via email closer to November 6.
