On Monday, November 9, 2015 at 7:00pm in the Berney Theatre, the Jewish community will honour the Filipino community. The Philippine-Jewish Connection program will feature “Rescue in the Philippines”, how President Manuel Quezon, of the Philippines, Paul McNutt, US High Commissioner, Army Colonel Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Frieder brothers - Jewish cigar makers in Manilla - helped 1,200 Jews escape to the Philippines. The program is co-chaired by Larry Vickar and Rod Cantiveros, well known leaders in our respective communities.
