“If we do not talk about it, if we do not remember, then the world will never know. And that has made me speak about it.”

Yom Hashoah

The annual commemoration of the Shoah includes a candle lighting by survivors, prayer and a moving program that remembers the lives lost during the Holocaust and honors the lives saved. This year we invite all descendants of survivors to light candles, at the end of the program, in memory of their loved ones.


Keynote presenter is Rabbi Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi, Senior Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute and current National Director of Recruitment & Admissions, President’s Scholar, and Director of the Office of Community Engagement at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.



Call for student art to be displayed during Yom Hashoah

“Mosaic of Memory: Piecing Together Holocaust Remembrance”

The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education invites middle and high school students to participate in an art showcase in reflection of Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. Using materials of your choice, middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students are asked to create a mosaic representing Holocaust remembrance. These mosaics can focus on the universal lessons of the Holocaust, highlighting the good that can come out of horror. Students can submit their entries to The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education by March 28, 2014 by 5pm.

In recognition of your creativity, a selection of mosaics will be chosen and displayed at CHHE’s Yom Hashoah commemoration on Sunday, April 27, 2014. For more information, please contact The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education.
