Congregation Etz Chaim of DuPage County

Yom HaShoah

April 24, 2017 

During the service there will be a series of readings, songs and prayers. We will recall the events of the attempt to destroy the Jewish people. The setting and mood of the service differs from other services held here at the synagogue during the rest of the year. We sit close together and take turns reading from descriptions, accounts and reflections on the Holocaust. We begin the service by reciting the Kaddish. During the year we gather as a congregation on many sacred days to remember the events of our past. On Yom HaShoah we come together to mourn and to remember.
