Omaha's Holocaust Remembrance Day
Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 7PM
Beth El Synagogue - 14506 California Street

The most fitting way to mark Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Commemoration Day) is as a community. This expresses our shared loss - a loss to all of humanity.

Participants in the commemorations benefit from joining together for a few carefully selected readings and prayers, which create an atmosphere of reflection and contemplation. Seeing the few remaining Holocaust survivors light their memorial candles each year and taking just a short amount of time to mark this occasion allows us to acknowledge our tremendous communal loss, and to move forward with a renewed sense of gratitude and a commitment to building a future without prejudice and genocide.

Support is provided by: Beth El Synagogue, Beth Israel Synagogue, Temple Israel, the JEwish Federation of Omaha Foundation's Gertrude T. and Albert B. Newman Endowment and Morton A. Richards Youth Program funds, and Gary & Karen Javitch
