Zachor. Gedenk. Remember.
Every year, Jews mark the anniversary of the death of loved ones, fulfilling a sacred obligation. For most of the 6 million who were murdered during the Holocaust, no one knows when that anniversary falls. To mourn them and to commemorate the loss of all who perished, a special day has been set aside — Yom HaShoah — a day when the entire community gathers to remember and reflect.
At the Annual Gathering of Remembrance, Holocaust survivors and their families, elected officials and other members of the community join in a memorial service that fulfills the sacred Jewish obligation to remember. Survivors participate with their children and grandchildren in a moving and symbolic candle-lighting ceremony that physically demonstrates the importance and power of passing memories from one generation to the next.
Honor the memory of those who perished at the hands of evil.
Pay tribute to those who survived to make a better world for us all.
