It was in the Pale that Feiga Shamis, a Jewish mother of 12, handwrote a 174-page letter to her children explaining why she had made the devastating choice she did to ensure their survival.

November 16 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
401 Fisher-Bennett Hall, 3340 Walnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States

In addition to his work on The Office (2005-2013), Lieberstein worked as a writer for Clarrisa Explains It All (1991-1994), Weird…
