Contact Samanthaa Samantha Fleischman

Register in advance. Please join us as we commemorate the Shoah. This year’s event will feature special archival video footage of local survivors and a liberator from the Fortunoff Archive at Yale University. We are honored by the many community leaders who will participate in this year’s program. 

The community is invited to participate in a special candle-lighting ceremony to honor our survivors and survivor families during the program. The candle lighting is made possible in partnership with the Or Shalom Men's Club.  Sign up today to receive your yellow candle. Pick-up locations will be available at several sites around the community.

We invite you to make a donation to the Jewish Federation's Holocaust Memory Fund and/or the Or Shalom Men's Club Yellow Candle Project below. As always, your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Please sign up to participate today in this virtual live event.
