Congregation Brith Shalom hosts Holocaust remembrance service
Holocaust Museum Houston will sponsor a citywide commemoration of Yom HaShoah, also called Holocaust Remembrance Day, on April 22.
Yom HaShoah, which falls between late April and early May, is the time set aside to remember the
victims of the Holocaust.
The event will begin with a 3 p.m. service at Congregation Brith Shalom at 4610 Bellaire Blvd. The service is free, and the public is welcome. Ambassador Meir Shlomo, the consul general of Israel in Houston, and Tali H. Blumrosen, chair of Holocaust Museum Houston, will be the guest speakers.
Holocaust survivors from the Houston area will participate in a candle-lighting ceremony.
This year's Yom HaShoah service is co-chaired by Sandy Lessig and Tobi Cooper and sponsored by the Morgan Family Endowment Fund and others.
Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to remembering the 6 million victims and honoring the survivors' legacies by teaching the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy. It is in Houston's Museum District at 5401 Caroline St. Admission is free of charge.
