Together with our partners, your Federation was honored to present the 2021 Yom Hashoah Virtual Community Holocaust Commemoration. Over the course of the week, our community remembered the victims of the Holocaust, honored its Survivors, and taught future generations. Together, we recommitted to Never Again, Never Forget.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our Yom Hashoah committee, as well as our community partners for their ongoing leadership and support. Their shared commitment allowed us to design a powerful virtual experience for thousands of local San Diegans to safely experience from the comfort of their home.
