Now more than ever, we recognize the importance of honoring our community’s service members, and commemorating Kristallnacht. We are hosting a conversation with Kristallnacht survivor, WWII veteran, and Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient Peter Hirschmann. He will discuss his journey of bravery and resilience with Risa Perlmutter Goldstein, whose father was a dear friend.

Security at Federation Events

The Greater MetroWest Community Security Initiative (CSI) is coordinating all security with local police departments. As with every Federation event, every available resource is being utilized to ensure our safety. Two important items of note:

  • Backpacks, luggage, or large purses will not be allowed inside. We encourage you not to bring a bag, if possible, or to bring a very small bag. All bags may be subject to search.
  • Please do not share Federation events on Facebook Live or any other livestream platform.

Building an inclusive community is a priority. Please email [email protected] to let us know if you require an accommodation to meaningfully participate in an event. One of our Federation professionals will reach out to you to learn more.
