2021 Cross-Canada
Virtual Yom Hashoah

Thursday, April 8 // 7 PM EDT // ONLINE 

For the second year, the Neuberger is proud to partner with Jewish communities, Holocaust Institutions and Federations across Canada to commemorate Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. As a nation, we will once again come together virtually, to honour the victims of the Shoah and pay tribute to Canada’s diverse community of Holocaust survivors. The program will include special guests from the east to the west, poignant readings and survivor testimony, providing us with continued strength as Canadians during these unprecedented times.



Program Highlights include:


// Greetings from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

// Curated films featuring survivor testimony

// Musical performances


Stay-tuned for more exciting program announcements to come!
