Annual Yom HaShoah commemoration at CRJ this Sunday
April 6, 2018
The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center in Maitland invites the community to its annual commemoration of Yom HaShoah, A Day of Remembrance on April 8, at 2 p.m. at the Congregation of Reform Judaism. The event commemorates the millions of Jews who suffered during the Holocaust and honors the liberators who fought to defeat Nazi Germany.
Each year, the Holocaust Center hosts Yom HaShoah, A Day of Remembrance, to remember the six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust. On this special day, we stand with our local survivors and remember the families they lost. We also honor the brave liberators whose heroism continues to inspire us today.
This year's program will feature a moving performance of songs that were once performed by the Women's Orchestra at Auschwitz. Performed by renowned violinist Matitiahu Braun, these songs remind us of our duty to carry the lessons from this tragic history forward. Other program highlights include a survivor-led candle lighting, responsive reading, and presentation of awards for the Creative Arts Contest.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
CRJ is located at 928 Malone Drive, Orlando. For more information, contact Terrance Hunter at email@example.com.
