Event Details The theme of Pinner Synagogue's 2017 commemoration, From Terror to Tolerance, will be reinforced by our keynote speaker, Mr Leslie Kleinman.

Leslie grew up in a shtetl in Romania, the son of a Chassidic Rabbi. He was the only one of his entire family including 7 brothers and sisters to survive Auschwitz.

The Romanian Ambassador will give a brief address. Other heads of diplomatic missions will also be attending.

The evening will start with a moving candle lighting ceremony, then a short memorial service will be followed by readings from young members of the Pinner community.

Doors will open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 8.00pm. Following the formal proceedings, refreshments will be served.

No pre booking is required.

Operating under the auspices of The Board of Deputies of British Jews Charity No. 1058107
