Course Description

Every year, the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies holds an event in recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year, we are hosting L'Dough V'Dough, which is a community storytelling and bread-baking event. In this program, Holocaust survivors (and others with a personal connection to the Holocaust) are seated at tables with students, community members, and other participants to share personal stories while braiding and baking challah bread together. The name for this event is a play on the Hebrew phrase "l'dor v'dor," which means "from generation to generation." Thus, L'Dough V'Dough programs are meant to cultivate deep relationships and forms of remembrance across generations. This event is being organized by the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies in partnership with Congregation Ahavas Achim in Keene, NH. L’Dough V’Dough will be a fully in-person event with limited seating capacity.  All participants will receive a small loaf of baked challah to bring home with them at the end of the event. Additionally, a light meal of soup and bread is included as part of the event.

Tickets are nonrefundable and nontransferable. If you need to cancel, please email cohencenter@keene.edu. In the case of extreme inclement weather, this event may be moved to a different date/time (tickets would automatically transfer over).

COVID realities: Participants should expect to be seated at a table with others. Brewbakers has a great air filtration system but, if you do not feel comfortable gathering in this way, then this event might not be a great fit for you. Masks are welcomed but not required (and we will have some on hand).
