Description:

This is first time that the Montreal Latter-day Saint community will participate in this tradition that brings together Jews and Christians on Holocaust Remembrance Day (known as Yom Hashoah in Hebrew) to commemorate the approximately six million Jews and five million others who died in the Holocaust during World War II. 

The evening’s ceremony will include music and prayers from members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, testimony from a Holocaust survivor, Mrs. Helene Kravitz, who lived as a hidden child during the war, as well as teachings and a candle lighting ceremony led by Rabbi Lisa Grushcow and Cantor Rachelle Schubert of Temple Emanu-El Beth Sholom.  Light kosher refreshments will be served following the commemoration.
