Ss. Robert & William Catholic Parish to Host Holocaust Survivor
“Roman Frayman speaks with purpose. As a Holocaust survivor, he shares his experience so others don’t forget. As a Jew, he talks to educate others.” This quote is from an interview given by Mr. Frayman in the Cleveland Jewish News in November 2018, and it serves as a wonderful introduction to an event being sponsored by Ss. Robert & William Catholic Parish (SSRW) and the SSRW Catholic Relief Service Parish Ambassadors Corps to mark the second year of the Share the Journey campaign. Share the Journey was initiated by Pope Francis as a call for us to share the journey with all our neighbors, not only those who live near us, look like us, speak like us, or pray like us. Mr. Frayman’s talk is one of a series of events the CRS Parish Ambassadors have planned and undertaken since the inception of the two-year campaign in September 2017.
As a Holocaust survivor who came to the United States in 1949, Frayman has spent the last 35 years teaching others about the hate anti-Semitism can cause, and his motivation comes from the anti-Semitism that he and his wife personally have experienced. With so much anger and division in our country today and with anti-Semitism and racism seemingly on the rise, his is a timely message which should be heard by young and old alike.
Everyone from Euclid and surrounding communities is invited to attend this free talk which will take place on Sunday, April 7, 2019, at 7:30 PM at Ss. Robert & William Catholic Church, 367 East 260 Street. A light reception will follow.
Come Share the Journey with us!
