Remembering Together for Yom HaShoah with Zikaron BaSalon
Everyone has a story to hear and a memory to share.
Yom HaShoah, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, is an important opportunity to listen to testimonies, share stories, and be in community. As people in many corners of the world continue to seek peace, we invite you to pause and use an upcoming Shabbat dinner to remember together. (In 2022, Yom HaShoah begins in the evening on April 27 and ends on April 28.)
Whether you or your guests have a personal connection to the Holocaust, the rituals and conversations at a Shabbat dinner table ground us in tradition and blossom our strength.
In partnership with Zikaron BaSalon, OneTable invites you to create an experience for open discussion about the Holocaust and its impact on society across time. Zikaron BaSalon offers a meaningful way to commemorate Yom HaShoah and open your hearts at home with friends and guests. Zikaron BaSalon suggests framing your event with three components.
- Past – Testimony: Watch or read stories from Holocaust survivors in the Zikaron BaSalon and USC Shoah Foundation host kit or explore the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s testimonies. (If you know someone who could attend your gathering and share a personal experience, invite them to join.)
- Present – Expression: Take a moment for everyone to pause by reading a poem, listening to a song, or offering time for personal reflection.
- Future – Discussion: Let everyone discuss their perspectives on the memory of the Holocaust and the significance in our lives today.
