Holocaust survivor Fran Malkin shared experience at Shir Shalom

Last Friday evening, Holocaust survivor Fran Malkin delivered the Sidney Gravitz Memorial Lecture at the Woodstock Area Jewish Community/Shir Shalom synagogue. Malkin was four when she and her mother went into hiding, alongside 13 family members, in a hayloft behind the home of a Catholic friend in Sokal, Poland. Decades later, Malkin and her cousins published the diary her uncle kept during their time in hiding, and told the story in a documentary, “No. 4 Street of Our Lady.”

WUHS Sophomore Job Shadow Day

Woodstock Union High School’s Sophomore Shadow Day was held last Thursday, April 25. The day is an annual spring event organized by the school’s Center of Community Connections and is designed to foster career-connected learning among all WUHS students. This year, there were more than 50 individuals, businesses, and organizations that hosted students. In a post-Shadow Day survey, students gave high marks to this event, citing the enthusiasm, knowledge, and genuine kindness of their hosts, and noting that they learned a lot from the day. Some students even commented that they would love to see the program expanded to include two shadow experiences during their sophomore year, so that they could explore more than one field of interest.
