Pre-program Recitation of Names: Unto Every Person There is a Name

As part of our Minnesota and the Dakotas Yom HaShoah Commemoration on Thursday, April 28, 2022, Temple Israel and the JCRC are organizing a pre-service “Reading of the Names” to coincide with the Yad Vashem international recitation tradition. This year’s commemoration is a hybrid event with both in-person and online accessibility. We invite you and your family to participate on Zoom in reciting the names of those who perished in the Holocaust as part of this meaningful remembrance.
The Reading of the Names will begin at 6:20 PM, with the Commemoration beginning at 7:00 PM, Temple Israel will project your Zoom image on the wall in the sanctuary as you read your list of names. We will send you a list of names to read uninterrupted for 5 minutes. You will be asked to have your camera on and microphone on during your allotted 5 minutes and then be “muted” for the remainder of the commemoration.
You may have more than one person participate from your home within your five minutes. We ask participants to start their reading by identifying the people in their family who perished during the Holocaust before continuing with names list from Yad Vashem. We will send more detailed instructions and the Commemoration Zoom link closer to the date of the program.
If you are interested to participate in this tradition, please e-mail Laura Zelle ([email protected]) by April 21, 2022.
