Everyone Has a Name
Join us for a special community event commemorating Yom HaShoah.
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Father Patrick Desbois
Join Rabbi Jonathan Singer and Cantor Arik Luck in the annual Yom HaShoah program. Father Desbois is an internationally-renowned human rights activist who has devoted his life to researching the Holocaust, fighting anti-Semitism, and furthering relations between Catholics and Jews. He has discovered the unmarked graves of over 1.5 million Jews who died in the Shoah, and works to reveal their identities to ensure that nobody’s name is forgotten.
A portion of sale proceeds from Father Desbois’ book In Broad Daylight: The Secret Procedures behind the Holocaust by Bullets will be donated to Holocaust education.
4:30 pm: Reading of the Names (Prior to the event—to honor victims of the Shoah, please submit their names here: https://forms.gle/GMog64cAX3mQPUX98)
