Sunday: Remembering the Holocaust

Fri, 04/25/2014 - 12:00am -- Rabbi

As the years pass, we have an ever-greater obligation to remember both the horror and inhumanity and the courage and dignity that our fellow human beings showed during this awful time in our recent history.  On Sunday, the day designated as Yom HaShoah this year, we will hold our own special program beginning at 9:00 AM in the Charry Lobby, in front of our own Holocaust Memorial Scroll. We will begin with the morning service and then continue with the lighting of the Holocaust memorial candles and special readings and reflections for this solemn day.  We will then be privileged to hear from our member Susan Rothschild, a Holocaust survivor, about her story of survival.  Please make every effort to join us for this important program, as well as the larger Philadelphia community Annual Memorial Ceremony that will be held at 16th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway at 1:00 PM the same day.  May the memory of the righteous be a blessing for us all.
