Yom HaShoah 2023
Original Program Date: April 18, 2023
About the Program:
The community gathered with us to observe Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), which commemorates the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the largest act of resistance to Nazi aggression during the Holocaust. The event included a candle lighting ceremony and live music from Mati Braun & Holly Small, teen members of Congregation of Reform Judaism, and Rebecca Kira & Eric Levine. Plus recognition of the students and teachers who won the White Rose Essay Contest.
This program focused on the importance of L’Dor Vador – the passing along of memories and traditions from generation to generation and include survivor testimony from Thomas Laufer and second generation survivor, Susan Bach, whose parents were members of the famed Bielski Partisans.
