Yom Hashoah via Zoom
- This event has passed.
2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II – a war that took the lives of 6 million Jews simply because they were Jews. Regretfully, due to the current coronavirus situation, it is not possible to bring everyone to Temple on Yom HaShoah for the program that we originally planned.
However, we as a community can and must still remember. Although we cannot be together physically at Temple Beth Sholom, we can still keep our pledge to never forget and join together online to remember those who perished and honor those who survived. Although we will be uniting through technology, this is not a virtual gathering, it is a true gathering and a true commemoration.
Please join us to commemorate Yom HaShoah on April 20th with Ma’ariv Services beginning at 7:30 pm, followed by a short program honoring those who perished and those who survived. We ask that you have a Yahrtziet Candle so that we may light our candles together as the Kaddish is recited in memory of the lives that were taken during those horrible dark days.
As George Santayana said “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
When we remember, when we understand what hatred can do, we can learn and bring hope into the world for a brighter future.
