Yom HaShoah Community Holocaust Commemoration
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This year’s Omaha Community Holocaust Commemoration is hosted by Temple Israel, and all are welcome.
Our annual commemoration is marked by readings and music from our local clergy, along with a candle-lighting ceremony honoring our Holocaust survivors and those who perished. This year, the keynote speaker will be Scott Miller, recently retired Director of Curatorial Affairs at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., who will speak about his book, Tracing The Fates of the St. Louis Passengers.
There is a special program for Jewish teens in grades 8-12 at 5:30 p.m. that includes dinner and an educational component based on the short film Pigeon led by the staff of the Institute for Holocaust Education.
This event has a Google Hangouts video call.
