7 pm Yom HaShoah Community Commemoration at Temple Beth El

We will recall that Genocide did not stop in 1945 and those modern day events that still continue will be remembered this evening.  As citizens of a great democracy, we must understand the importance of ensuring that high moral standards prevail. As the years pass and the eyewitnesses to those terrible times are gone...we are faced with the question: Who will remember? 
Our program will feature a musical remembrance of the vibrant life of European Jewry before the descent into the cellar of Nazi domination and the efforts to survive and then be reborn at war’s end. 
Catherine Greer will present a program in song and music, interwoven with our Service of Remembrance, with participation by area clergy and community members. The program will include special candle lightings by special guests Mayors Tim Burchett and Madeline Rogero and local 
Holocaust survivors and their families. 
 
Persons of all faiths are welcome to join us in remembrance this evening.​
