Virtual Rockland County Courthouse Yom HaShoah Commemoration

Dear Friends of the Museum and Esteemed Colleagues of the Legal Profession,

Though the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from gathering at the Rockland County Courthouse today, we were determined not to let this important Holocaust Remembrance Day pass without a commemoration. Each year, judges, justices, lawyers, and legal staff join together to remember their profession's part in this history - as well as the significance of their work today. In partnership with the Justice Brandeis Law Society and the Rockland County Bar Association, we offer a virtual commemoration for all to view at 3:00 p.m. today when we would normally gather, or whenever you are able.

Please watch the following commemoration video, featuring remarks and candle lightings from the Museum's Executive Director Andrea Winograd and several of Rockland County's legal community leaders including: Paul Adler, Esq., the Hon. Jeffrey A. Cohen, the Hon. Alan D. Scheinkman, Dr. Nancy Low-Hogan, and Keith I. Braunfotel, Esq. and featuring a piano performance by Marilyn Hazan.

Thank you for joining us to mark Yom HaShoah.

In Remembrance,
The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education
The Justice Brandeis Law Society and
The Rockland County Bar Association

Virtual Community-Wide Yom HaShoah Commemoration

Dear Friends of the Museum,

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 outbreak prevents us from gathering together for our annual Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, Commemoration this year. However, we know that this important day of memory transcends the present circumstances. Together with select voices of the Museum, we offer this video commemoration for you to watch at home with your families as we mark 75 years since the liberation of the camps and the end of World War II this spring. Please join us in marking Yom HaShoah and look for your friends, neighbors, and community leaders in this video commemoration.

In Remembrance,
The Board and Staff of the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education
