Yom Hashoah Commemoration

Date: Monday, April 17
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm (EDT)
Kean University and streaming on YouTube

Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ and the Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University are commemorating all those in our local community who survived, served, rescued, and continue to teach the lessons of the Holocaust today.  

Join us either in-person or on YouTube for this meaningful and inspiring program with special guest speaker Eva (Safier) Wiener, Holocaust survivor and one of the youngest passengers on the infamous St. Louis, the ship full of escapees from Germany which was denied entry at multiple ports. She and her family were allowed to disembark in England where they survived the war. 

The program will also include a candle-lighting ceremony, recitation of the Kaddish, and hymns.

In-person program will take place at Kean University, Liberty Hall Academic Center, 1003 Morris Ave., Building 2, Union 07083.

Attendees of in-person events and programs must be fully vaccinated. Masks are optional. If you are not feeling well, please refrain from attending.
