How Will You Honor our Holocaust Survivors?

Every year, Greater Philadelphia comes together to commemorate the six million Jews who perished in the Shoah.

Join the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia for candle lighting, music, readings and prayers at the 55th annual Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony, in partnership with the Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation, Association of Jewish Holocaust Survivors of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. All are welcome. This event is offered free of charge.

Let us never forget as we continue to Carry the Light.
