Rabbi Todd Rabbi Todd Thalblum is a graduate of the University of Colorado and received his ordination from the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, in 1999.

MB In 1945, in a now-famous piece of World War II archival footage, four-year-old Michael Bornstein was filmed by Soviet soldiers as he was carried out of Auschwitz in his grandmother’s arms. In his recent book, Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz, Bornstein tells the unforgettable story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love, and one perfectly timed illness saved his life.


This event is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited.
