April 21, 2020, is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. In World War II, six million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime in an attempted genocide. Each year, in Jewish communities all over the world, we honor the memory of those who were killed. This memorial has long included a public reading of the names of victims. This year, the Tampa Jewish community will amplify their memories through social networks. Online social networks are our public square at this time, and we will be carrying on the tradition of remembering victims.
Please use the link below to participate in the annual Reading of Names. By reading the names of the Jewish victims, we keep their memory alive, even as their lives were cut short.
The day will conclude with a communal Kaddish Service led by local rabbis and cantors at 7 PM. The service will be streamed to our website and Facebook. Please join us in the comments section to share in this memorial.
If you have any questions, please contact Rabbi Farb.
