Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Every January 27th, we commemorate the 1945 liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Today, the JFCS Holocaust Center will host an event that will bring together more than 70 diplomats, representing 27 countries to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day. We will recognize the horrific antIsemitic attack on Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas, and how we as civic leaders must take responsibility to confront hate and antisemitism. Leon, a Holocaust survivor who has educated the community on his experiences during the Holocaust for decades, will inspire all with his words of wisdom.

It is more important than ever that we reaffirm our commitment to learn, teach, and invest in our youth. Inspiring students with lessons of the past to be morally courageous and socially responsible continues to be our priority. This week, the JFCS Holocaust Center brought survivor testimony to more than 1,300 individuals across the globe. Our greatest educators are our survivors, and upholding their legacy through education is our strongest tool in confronting antisemitism, racism, and hate.

We hope one of our educational opportunities below will inspire you to honor this day with us.


Morgan Blum Schneider
Director, JFCS Holocaust Center
