A community event presented by the Institute for Holocaust Education
Omaha's Holocaust Remembrance Day

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.
