At sundown May 4 through sundown May 5, Israel will observe Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, a solemn tribute to the six million Jews murdered at the hands of the Nazi regime.
This is a day not just for Israel to remember, but for all of us to pause to honor those who were lost and those who showed great heroism to save the Jews. We honor them when we educate ourselves and others about the horrors of the Holocaust and when we gather with others to pledge “never again!”
To help you commemorate, we have gathered a list of Yom HaShoah services and ceremonies across the country that you can attend. Or visit our Holocaust Remembrance microsite to learn about the history that led to the Holocaust, the righteous gentiles who tried to stop it, and the ways you can take action.
Or request our free booklet, Never Forget, Never Again, which shares lessons of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism, helps bring understanding to the horrific realities of genocide and terrorism today, and encourages us all to stand with Israel and her people in her struggle to survive.
