December 6th, 2018 marked our annual Café Europa event for the Holocaust survivors that JFS works with, as part of our Holocaust Survivors program. The event was funded entirely by the Conference of Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, also known as Claims Conference.

A Dinner and Dance was held with a special kosher dinner and dance music provided by a Jazz band in one of the ballrooms at Fantasy Land Hotel. Everyone came in their finest outfits, laughter abounded, vodka and wine flowed, cameras flashed, and the dancing was lively. Please join me in congratulating the Holocaust Home Support team for all their hard work that resulted in a well-orchestrated and “classy” event for our Holocaust survivors. Hats off to; Rhonda Eidelman, Tatiana Kastner, Alberto Genis, and Alena Sasnouskaya for their energies in arranging an event to celebrate our survivor seniors.

We would like to acknowledge the generous support of the following in making this a great event; David Ghermezian CEO West Edmonton Mall, The owners and directors of the Fantasy Land Hotel, Graham Usher from Unwined-Fine wine spirts & ales, Growers Direct, BarLavy Photographer, Rabi Ari and Rabbi Mendy, Chabad of Edmonton and The River City Jukebox
