Imagine learning from your mother, who has only hours to live, that you are a completely different person than the one you always believed.
Torn” is the true story of such a person. This unforgettable tale began in 1943, when a young woman knocked on the window of the Waznkinel family in a town outside Vilnius. Another woman answered the door and quickly accepted a tiny bundle, a baby named Jacob. Jacob grew up to be Romuald Waznkinel, a Catholic priest. On her deathbed, his mother told Romuald the truth: he is Jewish.
Hosted by SAJE (Seminars for Adult Jewish Enrichment), Federation’s Alliance for Jewish Education/FedEd and Oakland University’s Judaic Studies Program
