Join us for the 55th Annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration.The event will honor Holocaust survivors living among us, remember those we have lost and celebrate their legacy. Doors open at 6:00 P.M.

The event will honor Holocaust survivors living among us, remember those we have lost, and celebrate their legacy. The program will include the traditional candle lighting ceremony in memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Shoah, as well as special prayers, readings and songs. The presentation of colors will be made by the Harry Washer Post no. 121 of the Jewish War Veterans of the USA. Singing of the National Anthem will be led by the Temple Israel Youth Choir. Teens from BBYO will make a brief presentation at the beginning of the ceremony.

This year’s keynote presentation is a screening of a new film highlighting local Holocaust survivors, in a nod to last year’s focus on local survivors and the incredible community response that followed.
