Mother-daughter duo Peppy and Lisa Margolis discussed “March of the Living-Marching Through History” during virtual erev Shabbat services for Temple Beth Am in Parsippany on April 9.

Peppy Margolis is a lifelong Holocaust educator who founded the Holocaust Center of Greater Metro-West and is the primary author of Caring Makes a Difference, the mandatory New Jersey State Holocaust Curriculum for grades K-8. Her daughter Lisa, a speech-language pathologist for East Hanover public schools and a longtime teacher at Temple Beth Am’s religious school, grew up hearing stories about the Holocaust from her survivor grandparents and watch her mother’s work. But, she said, it was when she joined a March of the Living trip in 1988 that everything connected for her. Peppy went on her own March of the Living journey two years later; both will talked about their experiences.

The next Wednesday, Lisa presented a Lifelong Learning program at TBA , where she talked about her work with Third Gen New Jersey, an organization dedicated helping grandchildren of Holocaust Survivors share their grandparents’ stories for future generations.
