Event Details

Congregation Shir Shalom will join with St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in a community interfaith ceremony for Yom HaShoah.

The annual Yom HaShoah observance marks the anniversary of concentration camps being liberated at the close of World War II.

The brief ceremony will be livestreamed, starting at 7 p.m., from St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 353 Main St, Ridgefield, Conn. Livestream is at ststephensridgefield.org/live-streaming-from-st-stephens. It also will be aired live over YouTube and Facebook.

The Rev. Whitney Altopp, of the Ridgefield Clergy Association, said, “In addition to the 6 million Jews who were killed, there were 5 million other victims, largely people of conscience — people who recognized the wrongness of the Nazi regime, and knew that they couldn’t stay silent. We want to honor them all.”

“Recalling the Shoah (Holocaust) must be more than an exclusively Jewish practice,” said Interfaith Clergy Association’s Rabbi David Reiner of Shir Shalom. “Resolving to end hatred, and taking up the call of ‘Never Again,’ must be shared by all peoples in every community.”
