Yom HaShoah Vigil

The evening of May 1st is the beginning of Yom HaShoah: Holocaust Remembrance Day. This is a day when we gather to honor the lives lost during this tragic event as well as to remember that we are stronger together and what truly makes this community unique and powerful.
Please join us on the Quad on May 1st at 8:00 pm for an evening of prayers, readings, thoughts, and collective reflection.

If you are interested in speaking or doing a reading, please message Tyeese Braslavsky and/or Rabbi Ari!
