Assemblyman Al Graf (R,C–Holbrook) recently attended a Holocaust Remembrance Day event at Suffolk Community College. Participants spoke about both honoring those that were lost in the horrific event and fostering a community of tolerance and compassion to ensure that such a tyrannical rein never occurs again.

Ilana Weinstein, a student from Smithtown East, was honored at the event for her hard work and dedication in reviving the Senior Youth Group at a local Temple. Weinstein also visits local nursing homes on Holy Days. Also present at the event were Rabbi Steven Moss, an official from B’nai Israel, Senator Lee Zeldin, and Suffolk County Legislator William Lindsay.
