JTS Commemorates Yom Hasho'ah

The Jewish Theological Seminary joins with Jews around the world in commemorating Yom Hasho'ah, a day of remembrance for the six million who were killed during the Holocaust. As a community, we unite to honor their memories as we say together, "Never again."

May their memories be for a blessing.


Commemorative Events

JTS partners with the Museum of Jewish Heritgage and more than two dozen organizations to honor Yom Hasho'ah with a special event, the Annual Gathering of Remembrance, at Temple Emanu-El in New York City on April 11 at 3:00 p.m.

More than 2,000 survivors and their families are joined by political leaders and other members of the community in a memorial service that fulfills the sacred Jewish obligation to remember. Holocaust survivors participate with their children and grandchildren in a moving and historic candle lighting ceremony that physically demonstrates the significance of passing memories from one generation to the next.

To reserve tickets for the Annual Gathering of Remembrance, call
(646) 437-4227, email agr@mjhnyc.org, or reserve tickets online. This event is free, but a $36 donation is requested to help defer costs. Tickets must be reserved by April 6.

Shaharit
and Minhah Services at JTS

Special services for Shaharit (7:10 a.m.) and Minhah (3:15 p.m.) will be held in the Women's League Seminary Synagogue on Yom Hasho'ah.

JTS services are free and open to the public. We invite you to join us at 3080 Broadway for these commemorative services.
