My time in Eternal Flame has greatly impacted me as well as shed some light into subjects that I thought I knew. Each week, as our whole group sat down at different meetings, I was impacted in all sorts of ways. The readings that we would read out loud to each other, made me come up with new perspectives about Judaism. One major part of this group that impacted me the most was the holocaust speakers that would share their stories with us. Listening to the gruesome stories made me visualize what actually happened during the Holocaust and how grateful I am to be living the life I am right now. These meetings, as well as the away weekend, really impacted my view on the Holocaust and gave me a better understanding that I will never forget.
