On Tuesday, April 17th at 7 p.m., Heartland Sings: Yom HaShoah, at the Temple Achduth Vesholom for the Jewish Day of Remembrance. Heartland and special guests will take a poignant look at the Holocaust. Heartland’s appearance is sponsored by the Fort Wayne Jewish Federation as a free community service event. No tickets are needed for this Day of Remembrance service.
The music embedded into this special service presents a haunting reminder of the Holocaust as special guests share memories from their personal experiences making this solemn event a time of honor, reflection, faith, and triumph over adversity. Winning poetry selections from the “We Must Remember” Poetry Contest, sponsored by the Federation in area high schools and middle schools, will also be read.
Yom HaShoah will touch people of all faiths. “Those attending, no matter what faith, have a chance to reflect on what the inhumanity of mankind did to millions of people. (It) gives people a chance to realize how lucky they are to live in a free country,” stated Doris Fogel, Holocaust survivor and member of the Fort Wayne Jewish Federation. Please join Heartland as it participates in this Day of Remembrance. For more information on Heartland, please visit us at www.heartlandchorale.org.
