Straight from Stephanie Blumenstock ’16:
On Sunday, April 27th, the Wesleyan Jewish Community will be organizing a commemoration for Holocaust Remembrance Day. We are organizing an exhibit of writings, artwork, and other creative pieces; the exhibit will consist of both pre-existing works and works by students. The exhibit will be accompanied by a poetry reading on Sunday afternoon.
We need volunteers both to submit original works and to read pieces:
From Maggie Feldman-Piltch ’14:
Sundown tonight through sundown tomorrow evening is Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day. We are commemorating the loss of so many lives with a 24 hour name reading in the Olin lobby, with readings in pairs or as individuals in 30 minute time slots.
We still need readers! Please take the time to be part of this beautiful and meaningful tradition.
Sign up here.
We will also be saying Kaddish and lighting a memorial candle at 7 pm in the Olin lobby. Please stop by to join in this moment of memory.
Help remember over 12 million lives lost.
Time: 7 p.m. tonight through 8 p.m. tomorrow
Place: Olin Library Lobby
