The Mandell JCC brings “The Butterfly Project” to West Hartford

The Mandell JCC in West Hartford invites the community to come together on April 24, 2 – 3 p.m., to paint ceramic butterflies that will be on permanent display at the JCC. Symbols of resilience and hope, each painted butterfly will be included in The Butterfly Project’s global count, with the goal of creating 1.5 million butterflies around the world—one for each child who perished during the Holocaust. 

The Butterfly Project involves communities from around the world in honoring the lives of the children lost during the Holocaust. In addition to painting butterflies, participants will learn about the children being memorialized as they watch a short film called “NOT The Last Butterfly.” 

RSVP to Sharon Holtzberg, sholtzberg@mandelljcc.org, by April 19.

This program is supported through the Beth and Benjamin Goldberg Fund at the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford.
