There are two days where the Holocaust is observed, International Holocaust Remembrance Day January 27th of every year and Yom HaShoah. The date of Yom HaShoah is determined by the Hebrew Calendar and generally takes place in April or May of each year.

Yom HaShoah

Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, is observed by the Jewish community each spring, and is a national memorial day in Israel. The San Antonio Community observes Yom Hashoah at a different San Antonio synagogue every year. This observance uses Jewish traditions to remember the victims of the Holocaust, we invite all San Antonio Community members to join in remembering those whose lives were lost during the Holocaust.

2022 Observance featuring music from Rabbi Simi Lam
Rabbi Simi Lam has spent the past three years as a member of the Kollel of Houston, having previously served as a member of Berlin-Lakewood Kollel. He has logged many miles traveling to educate and serve the spiritual needs of Jews in a variety of locations. He and his wife currently reside in Houston with their three boys. Rabbi Lam has musically inspired congregations in prayer and in song and will bring this gift of music and inspiration to San Antonio for the community’s annual Yom HaShoah observance.
