On Sunday, April 12, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta invites the community to remember the victims of the Holocaust with a special program commemorating Yom HaShoah (or Day of Holocaust Remembrance) at the MJCCA’s Besser Holocaust Memorial Garden. The program is free and will take place at the MJCCA, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, rain or shine. For information, visit www.atlantajcc.org, or call 678-812-4161.

The Yom HaShoah ceremony will feature remarks from Irving Roth, Holocaust survivor, writer and internationally known educator. The program also features a performance by Shir Harmony, Atlanta’s only adult Jewish women’s a cappella group; memorial prayers; and the lighting of six torches in memory of those who perished in the Holocaust.
