Holocaust remembrance scheduled for Monday at SPC Seminole

SEMINOLE — St. Petersburg College has scheduled its annual "NEVER AGAIN!" Shoah remembrance for Monday, the U.N. International Day of Holocaust Remembrance. In addition to student readings and candle lighting, Rabbi David Weizman and the Rev. Paul Sinclair will discuss the importance of remembering and responding properly to atrocities. A Holocaust art exhibit will be on display.

Weizman, rabbi of Congregation Beth Shalom in Clearwater, is from Cleveland and served as a chaplain on the post-9/11 emergency response team at the World Trade Center. He participated in SPC's 2013 interfaith initiative Proclaiming Peace in a Broken World. Sinclair is on the staff of the Milwaukee Rescue Mission, an urban outreach teaching formerly homeless men enrolled in a residential treatment context focusing on addiction recovery, job readiness and spiritual formation.

NEVER AGAIN! is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Digital Auditorium in the University Partnership Building on SPC's Seminole Campus, 9200 113th St. N.
