Jewish Community to Commemorate Yom HaShoah This Sunday

The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, the Mayerson Jewish Community Center, and Jewish Family Service invite the media to attend “Yom HaShoah Commemoration: Remembering the Past, Standing Up to Antisemitism and Hate Today,” to remember and mourn the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and to honor the survivors.  

Join us on Sunday, May 1, at the Mayerson JCC, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. in-person or via Zoom livestream.

It is simply not enough to remember, but it is vital that we ensure the lessons of the Holocaust inspire action today. Who will stand up to antisemitism? Who will continue to fight against the hatred that led to the murder of the six million? What examples are there for future generations to follow and how will the third and fourth generation tell their families stories?

Featured speakers include, Dr. Michael Meyer, the Adolph S. Ochs Professor of Jewish History Emeritus, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and Kevin Aldridge, Opinion Editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer, as well as descendants of Holocaust survivors. In addition, the program includes a moving candle lighting ceremony and music.

WHERE: Mayerson JCC

MEDIA OPPORTUNITIES:  Media is invited to the Commemoration. Interviews with museum and Jewish community leadership will be made available upon request. RSVP required to Communications Manager Kara Driscoll at 513-638-0508 or [email protected].
