Temple B'nai Abraham Remembers!

Every year Temple B'nai Abraham observes Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) in several ways. This year Yom HaShoah falls on Sunday, April 11 when at 5:00 PM Temple B'nai Abraham will hold a service and an observance of this day of remembering. The guest speaker will be Mark Schonwetter, B'nai Abraham member, who will share his experiences as a hidden child in Poland during the Holocaust. All are welcome to attend. For information contact 973-994-2290 or visit the temple website at www.tbanj.org

The TBA Men's Club in conjunction with the Religious School's Hey class participated in preparing the Yom HaShaoah candle project. They packed the yellow Yom HaShoah candles for distribution to the entire congregation for lighting in commemoration of those lost in Holocaust. The candles were mailed to each congregational family for lighting on Erev Yom HaShoah, Saturday evening April 10. The candle's yellow wax and symbol depicting a Jewish star and strand of barbed wire serve to remind us of the yellow arm band which Jews were forced to wear during the Nazi regime. The photo on the candle showing youngsters departing a concentration camp emphasizes the importance of teaching our youth the lessons of the Holocaust and of remembering the six Million.

On Monday, April 12 at 12 noon, the City of Newark will observe Newark Holocaust Remembrance Day, hosted by Mayor Corey Booker, the Newark Municipal Council and the NJ Commission on Holcaust Education at Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, 89 Ridge Street, Newark. Temple B'nai Abraham is one of the 23rd Annual Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony Partners with, Newark Now, United Jewish Communities of MetroWest Holocaust Council and Remember-NJ Commission on Holocaust Education. The keynote speaker Emery Jacoby, a Holocaust survivor, will share how he escaped multiple times from forced labor and concentration camps. Mr. Jacoby now devotes time to relating his experiences which include the loss of numerous family members in the Holocaust. B'nai Abraham's Rabbi Kulwin will participate in the ceremony. For information please call 973-733-8004.
