Yom Hashoah

The hallmark of observance for years has been the testimony of survivors.


This year, we are asking the younger generations to come forward and honor the blessed memories of our community’s loved ones who perished in the Holocaust, and those who are still with us today. For two weeks, we will set up a Yom Hashoah gallery displaying photographs, artifacts, and stories of tragedy and survival, of lives broken and lives rebuilt.



Examples to share:

  • Individual stories of perseverance and survival during the Holocaust...
  • Behind-the-scenes miracles that occurred in those dark days where we can see God’s hand at work…
  • Stories of individuals who couldn’t stand idly by and risked their own lives to saved Jewish lives…
  • The journey of having to restart one’s life and integrate into a new land after enduring such a horrific trauma…
  • Submit a photo of your loved one…
  • A story from the perspective of the child or grandchild of a survivor, on the impact they observed...
Submit your photos and stories by Thursday, April 20.
