Yom HaShoah (holocaust memorial day)

Yom HaShoah is the day upon which we remember and mourn the six million Jews who were killed by the Nazis in the Holocaust.

Zikaron Basalon (Hebrew for "memories in the living room") is an initiative to share Holocaust testimonies in a new, meaningful and intimate way as we gather for discussions among family, friends and guests. We are offering two discussion opportunities, one geared for families with children in grades 5 or older and one designed for adults. Please see below. For any questions or comments please contact Netta Asner-Minster, Congregational Shlicha. 

Yom HaShoah begins the evening of April 27, and ends the evening of April 28

Yom HaShoah/Zikaron Basalon with Ben Willcher
Monday, April 25
6:30 PM In-Person or Virtual

Join B’nai Israel member Ben Willcher for testimony about his family’s experience during the Holocaust as we remember the six million on Israel’s Holocaust Memorial Day–Yom Hashoah. Ben will share the story of his maternal grandparents Szymon and Chaja Nagrodzki, Polish Jews who were the only members of each of their families to survive the Holocaust. After meeting and marrying in a displaced persons camp in Germany and having their first child, they made their way to a new life in America. Their story is an extraordinary tale of survival, and an ordinary tale of a family building their version of the American dream. You may attend in-person or join us virtually.
