Yom Hashoah Commemoration

A program of the Jewish Community Center Sonoma County

A recording of this year's commemoration
is available below.

The Annual Sonoma County Yom Hashoah Commemoration was held on Sunday, May 1, 2022 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. via Zoom. The theme of this year's commemoration was Speaking Up and Standing Up. Three local Holocaust survivors or descendants – Eric Angress, Miriam Susan Dregéy, and Sandy Feldhorn – shared how they were helped by “upstanders” who did the right thing.

There will be musical performances as well as candle lighting by Jewish and other Holocaust survivors and those targeted by genocide. 

The program is free, but registration is required to access the Zoom link. Information about how to register for the event and submit names for the Memorial Book is below.
