Yom Hashoah Community Commemoration

Sunday, April 23 at 1:30 PM
Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel (BEKI)
85 Harrison Street, New Haven



Please join us on Sunday, April 23, at Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel as we commemorate the Shoah. This year’s event will feature a keynote presentation by Marji Lipshez-Shapiro, immediate past Deputy Director of ADL Connecticut.  


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.  


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 note: due to the forecasted rain, this year's commemoration has been moved indoors to Beth El-Keser Israel at 85 Harrison Street, New Haven.

Our deepest gratitude to the Holocaust Memory Committee
of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven
