Yom Ha'Shoah: Annual Community Holocaust Commemoration (virtual)
Sunday, April 11, 1pm
Each year, the JCRC brings together thousands of participants, representing over 100 synagogues, churches, interfaith partners, diplomats, and elected officials to ensure that the legacy of the Holocaust is preserved. It is perhaps the JCRC of Greater Washington’s most sacred obligation to host our local community’s annual Yom Ha’Shoah Commemoration in honor of the six million Jews killed during the Holocaust and of the survivors and liberators among us.
This year join us at our community-wide commemoration online at 1 PM on Sunday, April 11, 2021. We are honored to welcome Elisha Wiesel, son of Elie Wiesel, as our keynote speaker.
As years pass and our survivors age, the events of the Shoah become more distant. With anti-Semitism on the rise, the JCRC’s commemoration, along with our year-round Holocaust education efforts, are more important than ever.
