“#WeRemember: To honor the past and protect our future” will be the focus of the annual Yom HaShoah commemoration on Sunday, April 15 at 4:00 pm. The World Jewish Congress (WJC) urges people to join the #WeRemember campaign, a global initiative using social media to educate the world about the Holocaust and the dangers of anti-Semitism and xenophobia.
The Holocaust Remembrance Day event will feature eyewitness accounts of the Shoah from survivors and witnesses. The program will also include a special tribute to St. Louis survivors, traditional candle-lighting service, Holocaust Torah procession, liturgical readings and prayers. Join the community-wide commemoration at United Hebrew Congregation, 13788 Conway Road, 63141.
Music will be performed by Andrew Ruben, Mischa and Tova Braitberg of Elegant Ensembles. The program will be interpreted in sign language. For further information, call 314-442-3714. Special thanks to sponsors Sara and Leo Wolf (of blessed memory) and family.
