During this time of great uncertainty, staying connected and building virtual communities is imperative for all of us. One of the most sacred obligations the JCRC undertakes is to remember the six million Jews killed during the Holocaust and honor the survivors and liberators among us at our annual Yom Ha'Shoah Commemoration.
On Sunday, April 19th, we invite you to join together online with the entire Greater Washington community to participate in this year's commemoration.
Click here for more information and to sign up to receive a link to the live stream and the program booklet so that you may follow along and participate from home.
This annual commemoration includes original music, art, and writing from professionals and youth as well as recitation of the Holocaust Kaddish, and the inter-generational candle lighting. The program welcomes elected officials, interfaith leaders, Holocaust survivors, youth, and community members to help explore themes associated with the Holocaust.
This year, teens and adults will have the unique opportunity to participate on a zoom conversation with Holocaust survivors. Click here for information about the program.
This program is co-hosted by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of Greater Washington, Pozez JCC, and area synagogue. Each year, more than two dozen synagogues, houses of worship, and non-profits join us as co-sponsors and supporters. Details and registration at jcouncil.org/Holocaust.
