BJC Yom HaShoah 2021:
The Land We Always Dreamed Of


April 11, 2021 @ 4:30 pm 6:00 pm

United States
Free

The BJC is committed to bringing together Holocaust survivors from across the region, along with the greater community to commemorate Yom HaShoah. Despite being unable to gather in person for the second year in a row, our commitment to carrying on this tradition remains strong.

Given the close connection between Yom HaShoah and Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day, this year’s virtual program will take you to Yad Vashem. We will explore the exhibit “They Say There Is A Land: Longing for Eretz Yirsael During the Holocaust” presented by Stephanie McMahon-Kaye, who served as an educator at the museum. This presentation will highlight the hope, determination, and dream of a return to Zion shared by victims of the Holocaust, and survivors who saw their dreams of a Jewish state become a reality. The program will also include remarks from Senator Ben Cardin and recognition of teachers and Survivors committed to ensuring the lessons of the Holocaust are never forgotten.
This pre-recorded event will premiere on Sunday, April 11, 2021 at 12:00 PM on the BJC’s website and social media platforms, where it will remain accessible.
