In observance of Yom HaShoah, the Museum presented New York's Annual Gathering of Remembrance.

More than 2,000 people, including survivors and their families, elected officials, and other members of the community joined in a memorial service that fulfills the sacred Jewish obligation to remember. Holocaust survivors participated 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.

The Annual Gathering of Remembrance took place on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 2 P.M. at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan (Fifth Avenue at East 65th Street).
