  • Yom Hashoah - Reading Names of Holocaust Victims

    Yom Hashoah is a tradition at Cornell Hillel for students to read the names of the 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. This year, the readings will take place on Monday, April 28th from 10am-3pm on Ho Plaza.


    It would be appreciated it if you could take the time to fill out a half-hour shift. You can trade off between reading names with the other people who are signed up for your shift so you don't have to read for the full 30 minutes.  We are taught to "never forget" so please take a half hour out of your day to help commemorate those whose lives were taken.


    Sign up here.

    For questions, please contact Nina (nmg55).
