Holocaust Memorial ceremony at Beth Israel Aruba

Holocaust Memorial ceremony at Beth Israel Aruba

Beth Israel Aruba is hosting a Holocaust Memorial ceremony taking place this Saturday at 6:30 PM. 

Holocaust  Day, or Yom Hashoah as it is known in Hebrew, is observed by the Jewish people as a day of commemoration for the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish Resistance in that period. 

The evening will include prayer, reflection, candle lighting and a screening of the video Glimpses of Jewish Life before the Holocaust.

Everyone is invited to join the Aruban Jewish community in this public event.
