Are You Coming to the Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony Tonight?
Why do I ask?
Well, tonight, there is a good and moving FREE program scheduled at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Irvine. It is Yom HaShoah, the Hebrew words for Holocaust remembrance Day. The ceremony is being presented by The Persian Committee and the Israel Center of Jewish Federation Orange County.
How do I know it is a good and moving ceremony?
I’ve been there in the past and the group does a terrific job. This theater should be overflowing with Jews from this community as well as interested non-Jews who want to learn more about the Holocaust.
I expect that every seat in the house be filled. People should be lining the walls. So, I ask this question again, Are You Coming to the Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony Tonight?
Remember, we must teach the Holocaust to others. Grab your family, friends and neighbors and be there for the ceremony which begins at 7:00 p.m. (Doors, I am told, open at 6:30 p.m.)
A candle-lighting ceremony will be followed by the screening of Unlikely Heroes , a documentary narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley.
I do not know them but I want to personally thank the Babaknia Family, who are sponsoring the event.
