Annual Westchester Countywide Yom Hashoah Holocaust Commemoration

Keeping the Memory Alive: Generation to Generation

The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center and Westchester Jewish Council  present the Annual Westchester Countywide Yom Hashoah Holocaust Commemoration each April.

The event, commemorating more than 11 million victims of Nazi genocide, including six million Jews, begins with the sounding of a shofar and a procession of over 25 rescued torahs now housed in Westchester area synagogues.

It's held in the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center's Garden of Remembrance, 148 Martine Avenue, White Plains.
