Hundreds of South Floridians will gather at the Holocaust Memorial on May 1, 6 p.m. to observe Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and to demonstrate solidarity with the people of Israel.
The annual Yom HaShoah program is a solemn commemoration of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and pays tribute to those who survived.
This year, the program will also feature a special service to express unity with the people of Israel, who have recently experienced a renewed campaign of terrorism – including bus bombings and the brutal murder of five members of the Fogel family as they slept on March 11.
A number of community leaders will speak at the program, including Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico Ofer Bavly.
Never miss a local story.
Five survivors from the Miami area will present their memories and stories from their Holocaust experiences.
Address: The Holocaust Memorial, 1933-45 Meridian Avenue,, Miami Beach. In case of rain, the program will be held at Temple Emanu-El, 1701 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach.
