In the community-wide observance for Yom HaShoah, the Museum, the Warsaw Ghetto Resistance Organization, and the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants co-sponsor New York's oldest and largest Holocaust commemoration ceremony.
More than 2,000 people, including survivors and their families, elected officials, and other members of the community join in a memorial service that fulfills the sacred Jewish obligation to remember. Holocaust survivors participate with their children and grandchildren in a moving and symbolic candle-lighting ceremony that physically demonstrates the importance and power of passing memories from one generation to the next.
