Upper West Side Communal Observance of Yom HaShoah


April 7, 2021 @ 10:00 pm
April 8, 2021 @ 10:00 pm

For more than 20 years, Upper West Side synagogues and the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan have honored the victims of the Holocaust with an annual overnight Yom HaShoah Reading of the Names. Because of the ongoing pandemic, it will again take place online this year. The reading of names will begin on Wednesday, April 7, at 10 p.m. and continue overnight. Stephen Wise Free Synagogue will read names from 6:00 to 6:30 a.m on Thursday, April 8.

You must register via the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan* in order to join on Zoom. This year’s reading will be on Zoom only.

Every other week, Rabbi Ammi Hirsch hosts intellectually honest conversations unpacking current events through the lens of Jewish wisdom. Unbound by politics and untethered by party lines, Ammi and his expert guests discuss everything from race and antisemitism to all the other issues that keep you up at night.
