The Board of Rabbis of Southern Nevada will host this year's commemoration of Yom Hashoah at Midbar Kodesh Temple on Sunday April 23 at 4 p.m. The Board of Rabbis and the synagogue join together with community partners Jewish Nevada, Holocaust Survivors Group, Generations of the Shoah Nevada, The Adelson Educational Campus, Schechter Day School, Israeli American Council and the Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Resource Center, which recently relocated to the David L. Simon Center for Education and Tikkun Olam.
Holocaust survivor Harold Minuskin will be the guest speaker, sharing stories of his own family's resilience and bravery through dramatic readings from both his mother's and aunt's memoirs. The Minuskin family’s experiences are recorded in Harold Minuskin's books "My Children, My Heroes: Memoirs of a Holocaust Mother" and "In the Ghetto and In the Forest."
