Adult Education with Isaak & Evonne Kruger

KI Fights WWII
In our last presentations we covered how KI dealt with the Depression years.  
KI focused on our own economic health, assisted our members and neighbors 
in Philadelphia; was active in inter-faith activities to combat antisemitism, and 
slowly came to grips with the on-coming tide of war.  
This presentation will cover KI activities during WWII,  when over 500 KI men 
and women served in the armed services, including one of our rabbis,  and those 
at home were engaged in a whole host of volunteer activities.  Yet life at KI was 
remarkably stable as we focused on international events, the future of Palestine, 
and the fate of Jews throughout the world.
