We invite you to stand with our community on Sunday, June 10th, for our annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration, “Rededication to Resiliency” at the newly renovated Faneuil Hall.
The commemoration will feature Rabbi Alan Turetz a second-generation Holocaust survivor of Temple Emeth in Chestnut Hill, survivor testimony from Esther Adler, and the winners of the 12th annual Israel Arbeiter Essay Contest.
This past summer in two separate acts of vandalism, ominously reminiscent of Kristallnacht almost 80 years ago, two of the iconic glass panels of the New England Holocaust Memorial were shattered. We will rededicate the now fully restored New England Holocaust Memorial in a symbolic gesture of our resilience and perseverance.
