Holocaust Remembrance Week

We have made a few changes to the events and programs during Holocaust Remembrance Week. The dates and times, however, have stayed the same. Here is the final schedule of events:

April 28th- Hillel of WWU and STAND will be co-hosting a showing of the film Hotel Rwanda as well as a dialogue afterwards. CF 110, 6-9.

April 29th- Rabbi Cindy Enger of Bellingham's Congregation Beth Israel will come and share her expertise on the subject of modern day Holocaust denial. How is this crime presenting itself, and what can we do when faced with it? Hillel members will entertain Q&A after the talk. CF 110, 6-8.

April 30th- Join us for a special collaborative presentation on modern day genocide and how we can use our voices to educate and alert others of this issue. STAND (A Student Anti-Genocide Coalition) will co-present information and give advice to students seeking a way to become involved in anti-genocide advocacy. CF 110, 6-8.

May 1- Candle Light vigil in red square in remembrance of the Holocaust. Red Square, 8-9 pm, candles and beverages provided.

Would you like to volunteer at any of these events? Just email and we would be happy to work with you.
