Event Time and Date

59 Days until this Event

Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany.  Most Jewish communities hold a ceremony on this day, including liturgical readings, modern poetry, the lighting of candles, and songs and music.  The Jewish Student Union will be hosting a community service to commemorate the memorial day, and will be inviting the entire Marquette Community to join in prayer and remembrance.  JSU will also collaborate with other community Jewish organizations, including Hillel Milwaukee and the Holocaust Education Resource Center, and will be bringing in Holocaust survivors for a panel to recount their experiences.  This will be an extremely meaningful and special community service that will allow the Marquette community to engage in interfaith prayer and remember the importance of standing up to hate and bigotry, as we say “Never Again”.
