Temple To Observe Holocaust Remembrance
The Annual Yom Hashoah community wide observance of the Holocaust will be held on Sunday evening, April 22, at 7:00 p.m. in Temple Beth-El’s Main Sanctuary on Beach 121 Street. “The entire community,” says a temple spokesperson, “[will] join together for a vigil and prayer service involving all ages to remember the six million men, women and children who were killed in Europe during the Nazi atrocities – one third of the Jewish people!”
Rabbi Blaine, Cantor Dennis Waldman, Stuart Rauch, organist, Cantor Jeffrey Wolk and Betty Zapolsky, coordinator and chair of the Holocaust Committee, will participate, together with members of the congregation, in this important service. The guest speakers and participants will include survivors and Second Generation Holocaust survivor families.
Betty Zapolsky and others will lead a tribute to the six million. The entire community is invited to attend. Politicians and dignitaries have been invited.
The temple’s friends who practice other faiths have indicated how meaningful the observance is.
