Congregation Ohav Shalom, Albany NY     (518) 489-4706

Reading of the Names 5778

Sunday, April 8th from 6AM-6PM

Each year, as part of our observance of Yom HaShoah, we read aloud the names of French children who perished in the Holocaust throughout the day in the sanctuary. Our vigil will begin at 6:00 AM on Sunday, April 8, and will continue in 20-minute shifts until 6:00 PM that day. Everyone in the Ohav Shalom family is invited to come and read for a few minutes, so that, if only for a moment, some of those who perished are in our thoughts as individuals. We speak and hear their names, and we recall them as full human beings, not just as “victims.”

Please use the form below to sign up for your shifts. For additional information, or to have the office sign you up for a particular time slot, please email or call Nancy in synagogue office at 489-4706 x. 10.
