Dear Friends of the Jewish Federation,
We have extended the sign-up for Yom Hashoah For Every Person, There is a Name Readers at our annual Holocaust commemoration at the Courthouse.
The local circuit courthouse in South Bend will be hosting our yearly commemoration of the Holocaust. We encourage volunteers to sign up, to read the names of past victims during our Memorial. We will also have local leaders and dignitaries light seven candles for those who were murdered, or victimized during the Holocaust.
The Program for Yom HaShoah/Holocaust Memorial readers will occur on a first come first serve basis. Your time and order as a name reader will be determined as you sign up.
The reading will commence after the Judge, Elkhart Mayor Neese, and the Rabbi have spoken and the memorial candles have been lit. Each reader will have about five minutes to read their names. The name reading ceremony will last 1.5 hours, starting at approximately 10:30 AM-Noon.
The Memorial will begin at 10 AM on Monday the 29th of April In Judge Broden’s courtroom in South Bend
