Yom HaShoah Commemoration

Yom HaShoah is also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day. "Shoah," which means catastrophe or utter destruction in Hebrew, refers to the atrocities that were committed against the Jewish people during World War II. This is a memorial day for those who died in the Shoah.

Our 2018 Yom HaShoah Commemoration activities will be confirmed shortly. Please check back for more details.
