YOM HaSHOAH: 56th Annual Community-Wide Holocaust Commemoration

In Their Memory

56th Annual Community-Wide Holocaust Commemoration
Sunday, April 11, 2021 at 11 AM | LIVE | Virtual Zoom Program
Free Live Broadcast will be available on Vimeo here.


This year marks the 56th Annual Community-wide Yom HaShoah Commemoration (Day of the Holocaust Remembrance). Highlights include the story of how the monument came to be and a poignant lighting of the six elegant torches onsite in honor of the six million Jews that were lost.

A special in-home candle lighting ceremony will spotlight local Holocaust survivors, who will light in remembrance of their family members. Viewers will be invited to join in the Kaddish. This program is usually conducted onsite, this year however the community is invited to participate from home. Please join us for this moving memorial experience.
This special community-wide commemoration is jointly sponsored by Eternal Life-Hemshech, The Breman Museum and the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta.
