Yom Hashoah Commemoration

7:00PM - 9:00PM  

Highlands Cultural Center

In honor of Holocaust Memorial Day, Yom Hashoah, Jewish Federation of Reading will hold a  commemorative candle lighting by our local Holocaust survivors and survivor family members at The Highlands (200 Cambridge Ave., Wyomissing) on Wednesday, April 11 at 7 p.m.
Students from Gov. Mifflin High School’s senior Holocaust class will join us to share their projects on local Holocaust survivors. The event will also highlight pre-war Jewish culture in Europe through a short video clip and readings.
The event is free and open to the community. I hope you will join us at The Highlands at 7 pm on April 11 as we remember the Holocaust and honor those who survived. A light dessert reception will follow the event.
