Now that Passover has passed, we begin to turn our attention to the memory of the Holocaust with our annual, community-wide observance of Yom HaShoah.

Please join Boulder’s rabbis and a panel of survivors in discussion, as a commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day. This year’s event will be held at Congregation Nevei Kodesh (new building), 1925 Glenwood Dr Boulder, CO 80304, on Sunday, April 7, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

We encourage you to bring your families, especially your Bar/ Bat Mitzvah age children. Here is a video clip from last year’s observance (click here for additional videos):
