The Jewish Federation of NEPA has Yom Hashoah candles available at no cost for members of the community. The candles are lit on the evening of Yom Hashoah which will take place this year on Thursday April 19. “These yellow yahrtzeit candles keep alive the memory of those who perished in the Shoah,” said Federation executive director Mark Silverberg.
Also on the evening of April 19, 2012 the Scranton JCC will have its annual Yom Hashoah program at 6:30 PM . This year’s program will feature the newly released film, The Rescuers, currently featured at international film festivals.
