Never forget – Yom HaShoah 7 April 2013

The Jewish calendar has for centuries successfully marked events that took place thousands of years ago. Yet Yom HaShoah – the day designated in 1953 to mark an event that almost devastated the community just 70 short years ago – passes by in dignified silence.

That is about to change:

This year will see a step change in commemoration. Schools, youth groups, communities, families are all taking part.

Play your part and join them!

  • Respect a one minute silence @ 11.00 on 7th April
  • Wear a Yom HaShoah emblem. For your emblems contact: info@yomhashoah.org.uk
  • Light a Yahrzeit candle at home
  • Attend local events or the National Commemoration at The Dell, Hyde Park

The time is here and now for Yom HaShoah to be given the ‘honour’ of being recognised as an equal to all other important dates in the calendar of UK Jewry.

Rabbi Marcus, Chazan Leas and the Central Synagogue Choir will be officiating at the National Commemoration ceremony on Sunday.
