Larry Moses, Senior Philanthropic Advisor and President Emeritus, recently served as Scholar in Residence for the Yom HaShoah events in South Bend, Indiana, his home town.  In addition to delivering keynote presentations at the Jewish community’s Yom HaShoah ceremony and the city-wide gathering at the courthouse the next day, the Moses family commissioned and dedicated an addition to the Holocaust memorial on the campus of the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley in South Bend in honor of Larry’s mother Sherry, z”l. The new installation included bronzed shoes of a young girl and of an older woman, representing the steps of Sherry Moses’ life from girlhood, to Auschwitz, to America – and how her love of family and passion for life ultimately conquered the traumas she faced in the Holocaust.  To quote from Larry’s comments: 

“… I am the son of a survivor who embraced life, and found light, even in the darkness of her story.”
