2017 VA Yom Ha'Shoah

Northern Virginia's Holocaust Observance is organized each year by the JCRC and the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia. Our 2017 partners were Temple Rodef Shalom, HIAS and more than two dozen Northern Virginia houses of worship, government and non-profit partners. The commemoration included a program for teens to meet with Holocaust survivor Leonard Gordon and Syrian refugee Aliaa Noha Khaled. At the same time adults were viewing exhibits and reading the names of individuals and family members who perished during the Holocaust at "Unto Every Person There Is A Name," a worldwide name reading joint initiative by Yad Vashem and B'nai B'rith. An adult seminar included remarks by Ms. Khaled and Holocaust survivor Joan DaSilva moderated by HIAS' Melanie Nezer.
