The Annual Gathering of Remembrance on Sunday, April 8, 2:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. brings together more than 2,000 people including Holocaust survivors and their families, as well as New York’s political and community leaders, for a candle-lighting service at Temple Emanu-El on Fifth Avenue and East 65th Street. The Annual Gathering fulfills the sacred Jewish obligation to remember those who were murdered during the Holocaust. This event is held each year on the Sunday closest to Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day (which this year begins at sunset on April 11).
