The United Nations General Assembly designated January 27—the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this annual day of commemoration, the UN urges every member state to honor the victims of the Nazi era and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.
Join us for the 13th Annual International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The program will include a kosher brunch, the presentation of the 2023 Chesed Award (Nina Jacobs), which is bestowed on individuals who demonstrate exemplary “acts of loving kindness,” the presentation of the Simon Konover Recognition for Excellence in Holocaust Education (Rachel Torres and Joseph Goldman), and an important keynote address about antisemitism from Joel N. Lohr, President and Professor at the Hartford International University for Religion and Peace.
Registration is required and the cost is $20.00. Holocaust survivors are free.
This program is co-sponsored by Voices of Hope and JFACT.
