Yom HaShoah Commemoration

Date: Sunday, May 5
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm (EDT)

This year it feels more important than ever to come together to remember and honor the victims, survivors, and heroes of the Holocaust and to renew our commitment to sharing their stories with future generations.

On the evening of Yom HaShoah, join us for a community commemoration featuring presentations by Greater MetroWest’s teen Shoah Ambassadors and the Tzofim’s Metzada and Arava troops on how we can all remember and share the stories of the Shoah. You’ll also hear from the grandfather of one of the teens, a Holocaust survivor, about his personal experiences and what it means to him that his granddaughter is continuing to share their family story.

Registration is now closed. Be among the first to learn about future events and programs like this — click below to let us know what piques your interest and we’ll keep you posted on what’s most important to you.

We support and #StandWithIsrael as we continue to build a strong Jewish community here in NJ

Security at Federation Events Your Greater MetroWest Community Security Initiative (CSI) is coordinating all security with local, county, and state law enforcement. At every Federation event, all available resources are utilized to ensure your safety. Three important items of note:

  • Bag policy: Backpacks, luggage, and large purses are not permitted at events. We encourage you not to bring a bag, if possible, or to bring a very small bag. All bags may be subject to search.
  • Additional security measures: Additional security procedures may be implemented (e.g. metal detectors) as needed.
  • Social media protocol: We ask you not to share the location of a Federation event prior to or during the event and to refrain from posting about a Federation activity until after it has ended, and the site is clear of attendees.

Building an inclusive community is a priority. Please email [email protected] to let us know if you require an accommodation to meaningfully participate in an event. One of our Federation professionals will reach out to you to learn more.
