Holocaust Speaker Series: Peggy Dorfman

December 22, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Holocaust Speaker Series, held each Wednesday at 11:00 am, features Holocaust survivors and descendants of survivors sharing stories of life before, during, and after the Holocaust. Join us on Wednesday, December 22 at 11:00 am via Zoom with Peggy Dorfman.

Peggy Weil Dorfman is a volunteer docent and speaker with the Kol Israel Foundation.  Kol Israel is a small organization in Cleveland, Ohio that was formed in 1959 by a group of Holocaust Survivors that settled in Cleveland.  Because they had no family, they started a social organization that now provides Holocaust education to middle and high school students across Northeast Ohio. For information about the Kol Israel Foundation, please visit  www.kifcle.org.

With a bachelor’s degree in education, Peggy began her career as a remedial reading teacher. After seven years in education, she transitioned to government service and managed economic development programs for a Northeast Ohio suburb for 32 years. 

Past and present volunteer activities include tutoring in an adult literacy program and serving on the Board of Directors of her neighborhood homeowner’s association.  She has been a volunteer with Kol Israel since 2019.  She chose to get involved in Holocaust education because she is the daughter of European born Jews who fled Nazi persecution and immigrated to the United States in 1939.
