YOM HASHOA – HOLOCAUST COMMEMORATION

Memorial Candle Lighting Ceremony, Songs of the Holocaust

WHY ARE WE… still Jewish?

A rational response to the Holocaust might have been to leave Judaism. Haven’t we suffered enough? Yet we cling to our Jewish inheritance. Why do we stay connected? Why do others join us? And how is this identity shaped by the legacy of the Holocaust? Or is it?

Presented by Rabbi Adam Chalom, Dean, North America, of The International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism (IISHJ) and rabbi of Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation in suburban Chicago, Illinois. He holds a Ph.D. in Hebrew and Jewish Studies from the University of Michigan.

This is the opening presentation of a weekend-long seminar, Four Questions for Today’s Secular Jews. This session and service is free and open to the public.

The cultural program and pot-luck dessert follow Shabbat services. Childcare provided for children 11 and younger

All are welcome at this free event.
