Community-Wide Yom HaShoah Service

The Legacy, the Memory, The Next Generations.

Less than a week after Passover has finished, Yom HaShoah, our annual commemoration of the Holocaust, appears on our Jewish calendar. This year we invite you to our community-wide service on Wednesday, April 18th at 7:30 pm at Congregation Bonai Shalom.  Join three mothers and daughters, first, second and third generation survivors, in conversation: Irene Rosenschein and her daughter Beverly, Doris Small and her daughter Miriam and Rabbi Ori Har and her daughter Lael will share impressions of memory and legacy. The service is sponsored by Haver, Boulder’s Rabbinic Fellowship, and will include liturgical reflections and music along with the dialogue and discussion.

In commemoration of all the books burned in the Shoah, we will end our program with a Jewish book exchange. Please bring a Jewish book to pass on and take a different one home with you.

We are blessed and enriched by the continuing presence of survivors in our Boulder Jewish community and we hope that many will join this important event to honor them along with the memories of the six million.
