Recipient of the 2003 Solomon Schechter Silver Award for Excellence in Synagogue Programming, This 24–hour annual event is coordinated by Congregation Beth Torah Men’s Club. Volunteers sign up in 15 minute increments to read the names of those perished in the Holocaust. The names are read from 9PM Saturday until 9PM Sunday. If you prefer, we invite you to listen…be a witness as the names are read.
Many of the Holocaust victim’s names have not been mentioned in over 70 years. Most of the time, victims were only known by their number and never received a proper memorial. You now have the opportunity to rekindle their spirit by reading and/or listening to their names.
