Hearing Elie's Echo

Tags: Holocaust, Memory, Elie Wiesel, Jewish Identity, Antisemitism

Elie Wiesel’s voice is carried on by those whose lives he touched. Seven years after his passing, it is our turn to carry on the memory of a man who opened the hearts of so many with his insight, wisdom, and guidance. 

A mentor, a teacher, a voice of human conscience and consciousness, Elie Wiesel embodied the spirit of our ancestors in his role as the carrier of a message - to the Jewish People, and to the world - on the importance of remembrance, of Torah, of Jewish dignity.

Join Dr. Elana Heideman, student and protege of Elie Wiesel, in an exploration of memory and identity, connection, respect, and hope that encouraged Wiesel in his life’s mission.

Elie Wiesel will forever be etched in the history books, but it is up to us to ensure that his heart, his passion, his hope are etched in the hearts of all Jews today and in generations to come. Tracing the values and ideals drawn from his experience and its connection with our own lives, we can be inspired and empowered in our efforts to carry on the legacy of a legend. 


Let his words, life, and legacy continue to touch and inspire the hearts of others for years to come.
