Yom HaShoah is a worldwide day of Holocaust remembrance, and a national day of commemoration in Israel to recall the lives and heroism of the victims of the Holocaust.
This year we welcome keynote speaker Ellin Bessner, author of Double Threat: The Canadian Jews, the Military, and World War II. The program includes a memorial candle-lighting ceremony, with a reception and book signing to follow.
