YOM HASHOAH V’HAGVURAH 2022 COMMUNITY COMMEMORATION

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27 // 6:30 PM EDT- EARL BALES PARK- 4169 BATHURST STREET

UJA’s Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre – together with Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre, Canadian Society for Yad Vashem, Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program, Facing History and Ourselves, and March of the Living Canada – is honoured to present an in person community-wide Yom HaShoah commemoration.

The program will include remarks from dignitaries, a performance by the Toronto Jewish Chorus, survivor testimony, and a candle-lighting service to memorialize and pay tribute to the victims of the Shoah and to honour the survivors. We are grateful to be returning to an in-person program that will also be live streamed for those watching from home. A return to the memorial at Earl Bales Park will be a very special opportunity for the community to come together after two long years of isolation.
