In honour of the 60th anniversary of The Bess and Moe Greenberg Family Hillel Lodge, please join us for an evening of inspiration and celebration

IN THEIR DAUGHTER'S WORDS: A live presentation and book launch/signing of International Author/Speaker Roslyn Franken’s newest book, MEANT TO BE: A True Story of Might, Miracles and Triumph of the Human Spirit

As the proud daughter of two unlikely WWII survivors, Roslyn will reveal the unforgettable true story of her newest book, MEANT TO BE, which tells the remarkable journey of her mother who endured the horrors of Auschwitz and escaped death in the gas chambers three times and her father who at 93 is the only living Canadian POW Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Survivor.

How did John and Sonja survive their captivity? How did they meet to find enduring love? What did Roslyn, as a cancer survivor, learn from her parents that can help us all live better lives? The answers to these questions and more are what make up the powerful and uplifting story of MEANT TO BE.

Her father, a proud resident of The Hillel Lodge is one of a number of expected guests of honour including Mayor Jim Watson, Rabbi Reuven Bulka, Stephen Schneiderman, Executive Director of Hillel Lodge, Ambassadors from the Embassies to Canada of Israel, The Kingdom of The Netherlands, the Republic of Korea and other embassy dignitaries.
