Haggadah and resources for meaningful Shoah remembrance
As the generation of Holocaust survivors passes, we must find new, meaningful ways to commemorate the Shoah. The Hartman Institute in Israel developed Hitkansut, a ceremony of remembrance. Similar to the Passover seder, Hitkansut is guided by a Haggadah which weaves together literary texts, testimonies, discussions, prayer, and moments of silence to which participants are invited to contribute their own voices. Hartman North America has lovingly translated the Haggadah linguistically and culturally for the North American audience.
Like so many Jewish rituals, Hitkansut is best experienced as a group: family, synagogue, JCC, or school. Explore these extraordinary resources and learn more about how you can bring Hitkansut to your community.
In appreciation to the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) for supporting this educational program.
