On Yom HaShoah, communities around the world gather to remember the systematic persecution and murder of six million Jews and millions of other innocent people from a variety of ethnic, religious, and national backgrounds.

At a Holocaust Remembrance Day service, join together in music, prayer, and a candle lighting ceremony to commemorate those who perished. Hear from Irene Weiss, who will share her story and experience as a Holocaust survivor. During breakout groups, hear from direct descendants of other survivors, learn about the lasting impact of the Holocaust, and discuss how we can can honor the past while pursuing a more just future.
