Community Yom HaShoah Event at CEW

Sunday, April 23, 2017 • 27 Nisan 5777

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

“Never forget!” These stirring words remind us what can happen if we allow the Holocaust to slip behind the veil of history, if we forget the price that 6,000,000 paid simply for being Jewish. We keep alive the memories of those who perished in the ways we live our lives, the values we uphold, and our commitment to Judaism. We also keep their memories alive through memorial, reflection, and communal prayer.

As we do each year, we will gather with Community Synagogue of Rye, KTI and the Jewish Community Center of Harrison for a Yom HaShoah service. This year we have the honor of hosting this important commemoration which will focus on the life and work of Eli Wiesel. In the way he lived his life, he ensured the memory of those who perished. Through his life’s work he fought against oppression and genocide of other peoples around the world. He embodied the command: “Never forget!” Come to remember this giant of our generation, come to remember all those who perished.
