Shabbat Evening Services: Commemorating Yom HaShoah through Art and the Words of Survivors

Friday, April 9, 2021 27 Nisan 5781

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM


We are joined by artist, Dr. Wilma Bulkin Siegel, who has painted award-winning portraits of Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren. Her work as a prominent oncologist in New York City hospice care led her to honor these survivors. We will also meet Holocaust Survivor Norman Frajman and President of Holocaust Documentation & Education Center Rositta E. Kenigsberg. 

See Dr. Siegel's work here:
- Holocaust Survivors and Liberators
- Second Generation of the Holocaust
- Third and Fourth Generation of the Holocaust

Limited in-person attendance for Temple Beth El members only. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to register.

You can also watch on Facebook Liveour Livestream, or on YouTube.


Norman Frajman was born in the city of Warsaw, Poland, which was occupied by the Germans in 1939.  Norman was only 10 years old at that time. He experienced and witnessed the heroic Warsaw Ghetto uprising in 1943 and together with his mother, sister and other survivors, was taken to the extermination camp of Majdanek. 



Rositta Ehrlich Kenigsberg is the daughter of Holocaust survivor Henry Ehrlich, who was born in Miedzyrzec, Poland. When the Nazis came, he was in the ghetto and then was interned in several concentration camps, including Majdanek. In January 1945, he was on a death march and ended up in Dora-Mittelbau. After liberation, he married, and his daughter Rositta was born in a displaced persons camp in Austria. Currently, Rositta serves as the President of the Holocaust Documentation and Education Center, Inc., the organization she has been a part of in various capacities for decades. She always has been inspired by her father's words: "As long as there is someone to tell the story, there is life. And as long as there is someone to listen, there is hope."


Wilma Bulkin Siegel, M.D., graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1958 and received her medical degree in 1962 at Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania. Following her retirement, she combined medicine with her other childhood career target, painting, by attending The National Academy of Design.  Dr. Siegel has exhibited throughout the country. In the year 2005, April – October, she was featured in a one-woman exhibition “Holocaust Survivors and Liberators” at The Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has shown at Whitespace Collection West Palm Beach, Florida.  In April 2009 she was awarded the highest honor for contribution to the field of arts in Healthcare, Janice Palmer Award of Society of Arts in Healthcare.

Shabbat services in-person will be for Temple Beth El members only and pre-registration online through your ShulCloud member portal will be required, as we are limiting capacity to 50 people. Walk-ups will not be allowed so please register in advance. 

Online registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis and will close once 50 people have registered. A limited number of seats will be set aside for families celebrating a Bar/Bat Mitzvah that week and those individuals who are observing Shiva for the loss of a loved one. Those will be arranged in advance through the clergy office. Consequently, the number of seats available for general sign-ups will normally be less than 50 in a given week. 

If you are planning to attend a Shabbat service, a face covering must be worn at all times and social distancing rules will be enforced, regardless of your vaccination status. Additional instructions and safety protocols will be emailed to those participants who register in advance for a Shabbat service. 

If you need assistance logging in to your ShulCloud account, please contact Janice Odesnik at or 561-314-2814.

Registration for in-person attendance will be on this page, and will open at 10:00 am on Monday, April 5.
