218.Yom Hashoah 2016 13275 FINAL

JLGB Will Remember on Yom HaShoah... Will You Join Us?

An audience of over 5,000 are expected to gather together in Barnet on 23 April, to pay homage to the 6 million Jewish lives that were extinguished in the Holocaust and boldly declare in front of survivors that we will always remember. Once again, JLGB are at the forefront and are seeking over 60 volunteers to ensure the smooth running of Yom HaShoah 2017.

As a proud partner of Yom HaShoah, JLGB have been working alongside their team to ensure the event is a success. This is why JLGB are seeking over 60 volunteers of any age to assist at this high profile event. The purpose is to instil in the next generation the value of Holocaust education through active contribution and meeting survivors and refugees, thus ensuring the flame of remembrance is never extinguished. To sign up to volunteer and for more information please email support@jlgb.org 

As the years pass and survivors grow fewer in number, it has never been more important to commemorate those who perished, to recall the atrocities that occurred and ensure they are never repeated. This mantle falls to us, our parent's and grandparent's children. For these reasons, volunteering positions focus on holocaust education, including setting up the information stall, distributing flyers, greeting VIP guests at the door and escorting them to their seats. It is the committee’s belief that volunteering is an active way to engage with the next generation and encourage them to join the bid of “never forget”, and apply it to any genocide.

Already, over 2,500 tickets have been reserved and this number rises daily. Tickets are free and open to all ages. To attend the event and join the thousands of people pledging to "never forget" reserve your tickets here. The ceremony commences at 4:30pm and will include VIP guest speakers. Yom HaShoah unites thousands of all ages and backgrounds and invites them all to embrace our heritage and honour the lives of those who died in the name of their faith.  

Please forward the event details to all your family, friends and those in your community who may be interested in joining over 5,000 people at this important commemoration.
