The March of Remembrance is a community event for people to peacefully march together in remembrance of the tragic events of the past and in hope of a better future.
At a time when divisiveness is threatening our communities,The South Orange/ Maplewood Interfaith Holocaust Remembrance Service is an important community event to show solidarity and support of one another. Please join us in honoring the memory of the 11 million people who were murdered during the Holocaust and to celebrate the lives of those who survived.
WHO? The March of Remembrance is open to anyone in the community. All ages and denominations are welcome. Please come and bring your friends and family to publicly take a stand against hate and remember the atrocities of the past, during the Holocaust.
Some signs will be provided. Please feel free to bring your own signs to march with.
WHERE? We will gather in front of Congregation Oheb Shalom (170 Scotland Road, South Orange) for a brief ceremony. Then we will march on the sidewalk from Congregation Oheb Shalom to the traffic light just before Temple Sharey Tefilo Israel (432 Scotland Road, South Orange.) At that point, we will stand side by side in a collective moment of silence, facing Scotland Road, demonstrating our signs. We will conclude the march by proceeding into Temple Sharey Tefilo Israel for the remembrance service.
