2016 MD Yom Ha'Shoah

The JCRC's Community-Wide Memorial Observance opened with exhibits from more than 20 area synagogues, Jewish day schools, Holocaust survivors and other agencies. Teens from several synagogues came together for "Defying Authority, Pursuing Justice," with speakers providing their firsthand accounting from the Holocaust and the Genocide in Darfur. In the afternoon community members met in small groups with survivors to bear witness to their living testimony. The program culminated in a community commemoration with the "Mazeltones" and the Community Choir, original readings, the Holocaust Mourner's Kaddish and the ceremonial candle lighting with quartet accompaniment.
