Yom HaShoah Commemoration
On Yom HaShoah, we pause to commemorate the day and honor those persecuted during the Holocaust. Hitkansut, originally created for Israeli audiences and newly reimagined for North American Jews, will guide us on a journey from kinah to kimah, from sitting in grief to rising up to demand human dignity.
The Hitkansut Haggadah, like the Passover Haggadah, leads us on a prescribed path that instills within us the responsibility to remember, and the resolve to remember responsibly. The evening wove together newly developed and translated literary texts, testimonies, discussions, prayer, music, and moments of silence that invited all who participated to contribute their own voices.
This program took place on Thursday, April 28, 2022 and was part of Jewish Memory and this Moral Moment, a conference and commemoration on Yom HaShoah 5782.
In appreciation to the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) for supporting this educational program.
