Annual County-wide Yom Hashoah Commemoration (offsite)

Sunday, April 19, 2020 25 Nisan 5780

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaking Up and Standing Up

The Friedman Center, 4676 Mayette Avenue, Santa Rosa

Four local Holocaust survivors or their descendants will be sharing how they were helped by “upstanders” who did the right thing. This year’s event is being held jointly with Congregation Shomrei Torah and will incorporate elements that we hope will create an exceptional commemoration.

There will be musical performances as well as candle lighting by Jewish survivors; lighters for the Roma, Gays & Lesbians, Disabled, Righteous Gentiles, and Political Prisoners; and those targeted by genocide. In addition, yellow memorial candles will be available.

If you would like to remember the names of loved ones who were victims of the Shoah in our Memorial Book, please fill out the online form here or request a registration form at

For more information, please go to the JCC website or contact the Jewish Community Center, Sonoma County at 707-528-4222.
