Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, is the day set aside to remember the approximately six-million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. In Israel, it is a national memorial day. The Holocaust Center has been holding a community-wide commemoration since the establishment of the Center in 1981. The commemoration will include a candle lighting to remember victims, survivors, liberators, and the righteous. There will also be time for silent reflection. This event is free and open to the public. Due to limited seating, pre-registration is strongly encouraged.  Contact Christina Sahovey, csahovey@hcpgh.org or 412-939-7289. https://www.jfedpgh.org/Yom-Hashoah
