Yom HaShoah – 'The Reading of the Names'

The Elon community is invited to gather on the steps of the Moseley Student Center for "The Reading of the Names."

In cities across the world, Jews will gather to read aloud the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust. Every community has a different list. Elon will join this tradition to emphasize the depth of loss by reading the names of Holocaust victims each accompanied by a year and location one after another. We encourage members of the Elon community to participate in this act of remembrance by signing up online for a 10-minute time slot of reading from books of names of those who perished in the Shoah.

Please join us on April 12, 2018 from 10:30am – 2:30 pm.

This event is organized by Elon Jewish Studies and Hillel, and is cosponsored by the Department of History and Geography, the office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Science, and the Center for the Study of Religion, Culture, and Society.
