Lewiston/Auburn Senior College plans to offer a “Food for Thought” presentation on “The Ninety-Three Precious Souls,” an intense and interactive musical program that opens up the secrets of Jewish faith, prayer and martyrdom.

The session, led by Rabbi Sruli Dresdner, spiritual leader of Temple Shalom in Auburn, and Rebbetzin (Rabbi’s wife) Lisa Mayer, is to be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 23, on Zoom.

The pair is known internationally for their music and storytelling, and both are children of Holocaust survivors, according to a news release from the senior college.

The presentation tells the true story of 93 pious girls who faced Nazi horror and shame. Their deep faith in God, their unshakeable belief in prayer, and the strength they drew from each other gave them the power to perform the ultimate sacrifice.

To attend the free and open-to-the-public presentation, email [email protected] by noon Saturday, Jan. 22. and mention the “Precious Souls” program. An email with the link will be sent the morning of the event.
