Holocaust Remembrance Day: Voices of History, Lessons for Today

Apr 12, 2018 • 6:30 pm
  • This event has passed.

On Yom HaShoah, communities around the world gather to remember the systematic persecution and murder of six million Jews and millions of other innocent people from a variety of ethnic, religious, and national backgrounds. At this Holocaust Remembrance service, hear from a Holocaust survivor, as well as direct descendants of other survivors, to learn about the lasting impact and relevance of the Holocaust on Jewish families and modern society. Through music, prayer, and a candle lighting ceremony, we will commemorate those who perished and explore how young professionals can honor the past while pursuing a more just future.

Suggested donation is $6; no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

In partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of Greater Washington and 3GDC. We are grateful to Adas Israel Congregation and the JCRC for their financial contribution in support of this event.
