It is perhaps the JCRC of Greater Washington's most sacred obligation to host our local community's annual Yom Ha'Shoah remembrances in honor of the six million Jews killed during the Holocaust and of the survivors and liberators among us. Each year, the JCRC brings together thousands of participants, representing over 100 synagogues, churches, interfaith partners, diplomats, elected officials, interfaith and emigre communities and public school educators and youth, to ensure that the legacy of the Holocaust is preserved and carried forth by a new generation.
As years pass and our survivors age, the events of the Shoah become more distant. Knowledge of the Holocaust, and understanding of the moral obligations it imparts, is plummeting, and antisemitism is once again on the rise. JCRC's commemorations, along with our year-round Holocaust education efforts, are more important than ever.
Please join us in fulfilling this most sacred responsibility of remembrance by making a contribution to support JCRC's Yom Ha'Shoah commemoration and teen programming. And join us at our community-wide commemoration online on Sunday, April 19, 2020.
All donations of $250 or greater, will be acknowledged in the program. We welcome donation in honor or memory of loved ones.
