10th Annual Yom Hashoah Commemorative Service
and Reading of the Megillah Hashoah

Sunday, April 23, 7:00 PM

Join us as we commemorate the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. We will also light a 7th candle in memory of the Roma and Sinti singled out for genocide and the countless other victims of the Nazis and their collaborators, among them: the disabled, gay men, Soviet POWs, political opponents, Jehovah’s witnesses, some members of the Christian clergy and others with whom the Nazis found fault for various reasons.

This year we welcome the participation of the Rainbow Harmony Project, Winnipeg’s Choir for the LGBTQ2* Community and their Straight Allies.
