Butterflies are free

 

 

IN MEMORIAM—The Butterfly Project is dedicated April 13 at Valley Outreach Synagogue in Calabasas. The project is a display of ceramic butterflies created by kids to memorialize the 1.5 children who were killed in the Holocaust. Above, at the dedication are, from left: Carla Adivi, VOS JEWELS director of education; Julie Goren, VOS chair of The Butterfly Project; Rabbi Ron Li-Paz; and Gabriella Hoffman, ceramic artist and second-generation Holocaust survivor. The project is one of thousands across the globe to encourage communication between people of all backgrounds and beliefs in order to ensure a more beautiful, peaceful world.
