Christian and Jewish Communities Join to Vow “Never Again” in March and Program to Commemorate the Holocaust (May 1, 2016)
About the Event
Vowing, “Never again,” hundreds from the South Palm Beach County Jewish and Christian communities came together to commemorate the Holocaust in solidarity, with a march and an interfaith, intergenerational program coordinated by the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. They gathered on Sunday, May 1, 2016, a few days before Yom HaShoah, in the Boca Raton Christian School (BRCS) gymnasium at 3:00 p.m.
The half-mile march along Boca Raton streets took them to Temple Beth El of Boca Raton, where they joined in a deeply moving program featuring local Jewish and Christian clergy, survivors, children from synagogues and churches, and live music for the occasion.
The 2015 March of Remembrance was a regional, collaborative effort uniting the Southeast Florida community through churches, synagogues and community groups. Planning for the event included, among others, the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and its Jewish Community Relations Council, Boca Raton Interfaith Clergy Association, Boca Raton Christian School, Temple Beth El of Boca Raton, and The Flame Society.
