UJA’s Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre invites you to join us, alongside partner organizations, for an in-person, community-wide Yom HaShoah commemoration.


We are grateful to be able to once again hold this special event at Earl Bales Park, bringing together our entire community to remember the victims of the Shoah, honour the survivors, and reaffirm our commitment to preserving the memories and lessons of the Holocaust.


This important program is presented in partnership with Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center, Canadian Society for Yad Vashem, the Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program, Facing History and Ourselves, and March of the Living Canada. A virtual streaming option will be available for those who wish to participate online.


Program Highlights:


// The Toronto Jewish Chorus, survivor testimony, and a candle-lighting service.

// A moving tribute to Toronto-based Holocaust survivors we have lost throughout this past year.

// Remarks from Canadian officials, dignitaries, and community leaders.
