Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remem-brance Day, falls on April 8 and groups around the Bay Area will take different approaches to the question of how to honor the victims of the Holocaust.
Many of the remembrances will take place April 7 and will include readings of victims’ names and memorial candlelightings. As part of its service that day, Congregation Beth Emek in Pleasanton will commemorate a Torah that survived the Holocaust even after Nazis seized it.
...B’nai B’rith will hold its annual commemoration, “Unto Every Person There Is a Name,” at the George Segal Holocaust Memorial at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a special lighting of candles by Holocaust survivors at noon. The George Segal Holocaust Memorial is at 100 34th Ave., S.F. Free. (415) 752-9304...more.
