JCRC Holocaust Commemorations


The JCRC of Greater Washington is one of the oldest in the nation.  Founded in 1938, Holocaust remembrance and education has always been an important component of our mission.  The JCRC has been hosting large annual commemorations for the Greater Washington community dating back to at least the 1970s.  Each year we endeavor to expand and improve our offerings.  Below are those programs from the past decade.
