Community Yom Ha’Shoah Commemoration

Sunday April 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


  • This event has passed.

Join the Jewish community from across the DC area for an annual Yom Ha’Shoah Commemoration in honor of the six million Jews killed during the Holocaust and of the survivors and liberators among us. Each year, the JCRC brings together thousands of participants, representing more than 100 synagogues, churches, interfaith partners, diplomats, and elected officials to ensure that the legacy of the Holocaust is preserved.

This year join us at our community-wide commemoration online at 1 PM on Sunday, April 11, 2021. We are honored to welcome Elisha Wiesel, son of Elie Wiesel, as our keynote speaker.

As years pass and our survivors age, the events of the Shoah become more distant. With antisemitism on the rise, the JCRC’s commemoration, along with our year-round Holocaust education efforts, are more important than ever.

This program will take place online.

This program is presented by the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington.
