Past Events

  • 5th Annual Frozen Memorial!



    On May 4th, members of Boston 3G gathered for the 5th consecutive year at Faneuil Hall for our 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!
