Boston 3G is partnering on with other groups across the globe. Join us on International Holocaust Remembrance Day to hear from the descendants of the Auschwitz camps in a panel discussion hosted by 3G Community leaders across the US and Israel.
On May 1, 2016, Boston 3G’s little ones (the 4Gs) participated in their first official Yom HaShoah commemoration. To help honor Holocaust Remembrance Day, 3Gs worked with their 4Gs to find rocks, painted them for peace, talked to them about the importance of being kind to one another no matter one’s differences and then particapated in the city wide commemoration. The kids aged 1 – 15 years old led a procession of survivors and the rest of those attending to the NE Holocaust Memorial waving Israeli and American flags to welcome them. Kaddish was said at the memorial and the children placed their rock on the granite plaque at the entrance of the memorial. The placing of the rock was to symbolize the Jewish custom done at gravesites to serve as a sign to others that someone has visited the grave. Our hope is that our children’s brightl colored rocks of peace will also symbolize hope for the future.This program was supported in part by a Young Adult Community Grant from Combined Jewish Philanthropies.Continue reading →
On May 1, 2016 members of Boston 3G and even 4Gs gathered at Faneuil Hall for the annual Frozen Memorial event. The Frozen Memorial is a unique moment silence, a ‘Frozen Flash Mob,’ where we freeze in place in the middle of Faneuil Marketplace for six minutes, in honor of the six million. The purpose of this event is to not only honor those who were lost, but to raise awareness and educate our community about the tragedies of the Holocaust. Thank you to all who participated, this event would not be a success without you!
