1999 Holocaust Memorial

Candle donations were used to erect a Holocaust memorial in the synagogue lobby. The wall-sized sculpture is constructed from sand-blasted glass with a ray of light emanating from its dark interior. More than 300 people attended a moving unveiling ceremony, which included solemn readins of victims’ names.

1999 Holocaust Education

This two-part program taught adults and youth about the Holocaust as well as about the tragic conditions of survivors following the war. The program involved the showing of the Oscar-winning film, “The Long Way Home,” followed a month later by a brunch with a Survivor from the film as the guest speaker. The film was also shown to the Confirmation class.
