YOM HASHOAH HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE - FRIDAY, MAY 13
Yom HaShoah is our day of remembrance for the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust between 1933 and 1945. The word “holocaust” means “burnt offering” and many Jews prefer the Hebrew word Shoah, which connotes catastrophe, calamity, disaster and destruction. Yom HaShoah occurs on 27 Nisan to coincide with the 1943 Warsaw ghetto uprising, and this year corresponds to May 4-5. On Friday, May 13, please join us for our annual Yom HaShoah observance, with details to follow.
