Join us for Interfaith Yom HaShoah Service Tuesday, April 25th 8pm at The General Theological Seminary (175 9th Avenue between 20th and 21st Street) 

Since 1988 students of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and The General Theological Seminary have come together to offer prayers, readings and music in memory of those who perished in the Holocaust and to pray for all victims of genocide. Students from both schools will help lead the service, so HUC-JIR will need between 6 and 9 students/faculty/staff/community members to help lead the service. 

We encourage all to attend and we invite you to participate by being a reader or lighting a candle. 

If you're interested in being a reader or lighting a candle 

Please contact: Heather Miller at or Andy Gordon at ASAP.
