To Remember, To Remind: A Contemporary Observance of Yom HaShoah

Thursday, April 28, 2022 27 Nisan 5782

7:00 PM - 8:00 PMBernstein Chapel

As we prepare to mark a Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) for which few survivors remain, we are forced anew to confront the question, “What does it mean to remember?” And, as part of that question, we must wrestle with the commandment of “Never again.”

Congregation Shaarey Zedek of Southfield is setting these sacred tasks before the community in marking this year’s Yom HaShoah. We are innovating a new experience to explore meaning more than mourning, and to move from memory to empowerment. Entitled To Remember, To Remind, and rooted in the Shalom Hartman Institute’s Hitkansut ceremony, we will not only listen to the stories of survivors, but we will seek the lessons learned by their descendants. We will sing and we will pray. Most of all, we will ask what our obligations are some 80 years after the close of World War II.

The Holocaust’s legacy must help to shape our communal agenda and our individual choices.  What does it mean to remember and how do we fulfill the commandment, “Never again”?
