Join us for this moving program with candle lighting, speakers, singing and prayers.

This annual Yom HaShoah event is truly a community effort with rabbis and cantors from all the local synagogues participating in the memorial service. This year the service will be led by Rabbi Mark Goldfarb of Temple Beth Ohr. 

The guest speaker this year is Michael Marrus. Mr. Marrus is the Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Professor Emeritus of Holocaust Studies at the University of Toronto and a Member of the Order of Canada. He has taught and lectured widely about the Holocaust. He is the author of eight books including, with Robert Paxton, Vichy France and the Jews, first published in 1982 and just reissued in France.
