Members of New York’s Jewish community have joined forces to organize the Lower East Side Yom HaShoah Commemoration, an event taking place at the Bialystoker Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. The commemoration features a variety of exhibits, including multimedia art by T. Weinstein called The 36 Unknown; photographs from survivors, and work celebrating modern-day life on the Lower East Side. Stories of survivors will be presented in video and written form, and author and survivor Rena Bernstein will speak about her family’s experiences.
The event also includes a candle-lighting memorial. A number of the city’s religious leaders have contributed to the program, including Rabbi Yehuda Blank of the Bialystoker Center, Rabbi Jonathan Glass of the Synagogue for the Arts and Rabbi Yisroel Stone of the Eldridge Street Synagogue.
