Yom Hashoah Live-Stream – April 20
Like many organisations across the country, the coronavirus is challenging how the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies can simultaneously fulfil its community commemoration obligations and respond responsibly to the public health crisis.
With the well-being of our community members being paramount, we have decided to CANCEL all public Yom Hashoah commemoration events – Rookwood Cemetery (April 19), East event at UNSW (April 19) and North event at Masada College (April 20).
On April 20 at 7:00pm the Board of Deputies will LIVE-STREAM a Yom Hashoah commemoration. Only guest speakers and those participating in the ceremony will be present. It will not be open to the public.
This is the most appropriate course of action for an event where a substantial number of the attendees are members of identified at-risk-groups for the coronavirus. These arrangements will allow us to maintain our decades-long tradition of coming together as a community, albeit virtually, to remember those who perished and honour our survivors.
The live-stream web link will be distributed to community members as soon as it is available.
