First speaker of Chabads' 'zoom lecture series' is Holocaust survivor

Chabads of North Orlando and Greater Orlando will be hosting Holocaust survivor Dr. Jacob Eisenbach, who lived through the horrors of the Nazi occupation of Poland, a labor camp and concentration camps, will tell his story of survival at a special zoom event on Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Dr. Eisenbach, 95, was the sole survivor of the Holocaust from his extended family of about 100 people. He immigrated to the United States in 1950, married a fellow survivor and built a dentistry practice he operated for 60 years. 

"We are honored to have Dr. Jacob Eisenbach share his inspiring story," said Chanshy Majesky, director of Chabad North Orlando. "It is so important that people today, particularly young people, understand what happened in Nazi Germany and the lessons it provides for all of humanity."

"I am committed to sharing my story with as many people as possible, the world must know of the Nazi crimes" said Dr. Eisenbach, "but in recent years it has gotten very difficult for me to travel. With everyone turning to Zoom because of the pandemic, there has been a silver lining that I can now, once again, share my story with Jews and Gentiles, young and old, around the world." 

This event is part of a new series of zoom lectures the two local Chabads will be hosting on a monthly basis titled "Physically Apart - Emotionally Together." 

Other guest speakers on the zoom program will include Comedian Joel Chasnof, Nazi Hunter Efraim Zuroff and many other captivating, and educational speakers and lectures. 

Tickets can be purchased for an individual program for $10 or you can sign up for the full series at a discounted rate. 

Zoom ID and password will be provided upon registration.
