2015 NoVA JCRC Holocaust YHS Program

The JCRC partners with the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia (JCCNV) each year to host the Northern Virginia Holocaust Observance. In 2015 our lead co-hosts were Congregation Beth Emeth with Rabbi Michelle 'Mina' Goldsmith leading the program and the Northern Virginia Hebrew Congregation, with Carol Fram leading the community choir. Over 500 Holocaust survivors, diplomats, elected officials, interfaith clergy, students and adults participated. Original works were created by seven professional arts and the JCCNV dance director. The program may be viewed at www.jcouncil.org/Shoa2015VAProgram
