On Yom HaShoah, communities around the world gather to remember the systematic persecution and murder of six million Jews and millions of other innocent people from a variety of ethnic, religious, and national backgrounds.
In this Holocaust Remembrance Day service, come together in music, prayer, and a candle lighting ceremony to commemorate those who perished. Hear from Holocaust Survivor Manny Mandel, 3GDC Founder and President Elana Rosenfield, and other members of the 3G community. Also, Councilwoman Brianne Nadeau will share the DC Council's proclamation recognizing Yom HaShoah.
Please consider inviting a friend or colleague who has never heard a Holocaust survival story from a survivor. The opportunities are more and more limited every year.
In partnership with the JCRC of Greater Washington

Commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day with Violins of Hope
Thursday, January 27, 2022 @ 7:30 PM
Violins of Hope is an artistic and educational project composed of instruments that were owned by Jewish musicians before and during the Holocaust. Violins in the collection were played in the concentration camps and ghettos, providing a source of comfort for some, and a means of survival for others. Above all, the instruments represented strength and optimism for the future during mankind’s darkest hour. Wherever there was music, there was hope. Los-Angeles based violinist Niv Ashkenazi (pictured) will take us on a journey telling the stories behind the violins and about the Violins of Hope program. Musical pieces played on one of the violins will be woven throughout the presentation.
