Yom Ha'Shoah

Join us for Yom Ha'Shoah, our annual community-wide Holocaust Memorial program at the Uptown JCC. This event is free and open to the public. 

The JCC will host author Georgia Hunter, whose best-selling debut novel, We Were the Lucky Ones, is the extraordinary true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of World War II, determined to survive—and to reunite. Based upon her own relatives’ experiences during the war, this powerful and suspenseful saga is described as a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds.

During the program, we will remember and honor New Orleans Holocaust survivors, recognize students from the Donald R. Mintz Youth Leadership Mission of the Anti-Defamation League, and present the Holocaust Educator of the Year Award to Paul Distler for the outstanding work he has done integrating Holocaust education into the curriculum at Cabrini High School.

A dessert reception will follow the program.

Special thanks to the Jewish Endowment Foundation Holocaust Project and the New American Social Club for their support of this program and to the Feil Family Foundation/Lakeside Shopping Center for their continued support of Jewish cultural programs
