FHM to Host Annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration

 The Florida Holocaust Museum, in partnership with the Pinellas County Board of Rabbis will host a Yom HaShoah Commemoration at the Museum, Sunday, April 27 at 2pm.  There is no charge to attend the 2pm commemorative service and the Museum will be free to the public all day Sunday.

 

Known more commonly outside of Israel as Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom HaShoah honors the memory of the more than six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust.  The full name of the day is Yom HaShoah Ve-Hagevurah or "Day of the Remembrance of the Holocaust and the Heroism" as it also marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

 

Stanlee Stahl, Executive Vice President of the New York-based Jewish Foundation for the Righteous (JFR), will be the guest speaker at this year's commemoration.  The JFR's mission is to preserve the memory and legacy of non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust while also providing financial support to dozens of those heroes who now find themselves in need of assistance. The JFR has provided assistance to as many as 1,750 individuals around the world.

 

Holocaust survivors will take part in candle lighting in honor of the six million who perished.
