Ghosts of Rwanda, Thursday April 16th

Hi everyone,

15 years ago this month, 800,000 human beings were slaughtered over 100 days.  How could it happen that the world stood aside and did nothing?

I hope you will join us this Thursday as we remember the Rwandan genocide by screening the exceptionally moving and well-done Frontline documentary, Ghosts of RwandaSee a clip from the documentary here.

If you plan to attend, please let us know.  See you then,

Never again? A Darfur refugee speaks


Jewish World Watch joins with University Synagogue and the Irvine United Congregational Church (IUCC) in hosting a talk by Adam Abakar, Darfuri activist and survivor of the genocide in his country.

Adam will speak at University Synagogue about his experiences in Darfur and a call to action.  Our Religious School students will give Jewish World Watch a check for money that they raised by selling Potholders for Peace.  At the reception following the talk, we will have an opportunity to be part of a digital postcard urging President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton to take action immediately to end the slaughter in Sudan.

Come to this moving and important event.  Here is the flyer for the event.
