Annual Gathering of Remembrance Is Sunday, April 11

Please join us online at 2 PM Eastern on Sunday, April 11 for this year’s virtual Annual Gathering of Remembrance in observance of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The program will feature music, remarks from Holocaust survivors and young people, and a candle-lighting ceremony. The program will also feature reflections from Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff; U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer; Elisha Wiesel, son of the late Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel; Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Holocaust survivor and Museum Trustee; and other public figures. Together, we will honor the memory of those who perished at the hands of evil and pay tribute to those who survived and have made a better world for us all.
