Each year, local city and county councils issue Proclamations that commemorate the Holocaust and honor Holocaust victims. In very moving ceremonies during their scheduled council meetings, a member of the Council reads a Proclamation, followed by a candle lighting ceremony. It is crucial for members of the Jewish community to support these proclamations by attending the council meetings at which the proclamation is read. The schedule of the readings of the Proclamations for 2013 is as follows:
March 12th at 6:00 pm Mount Pleasant Town Council
March 14th at 6:40 pm North Charleston City Council
April 9th at 6:30 pm Charleston County Council
The REMEMBER Program urges you to show your support of Holocaust remembrance in the community.
Please email Tamar Sternfeld or call 614-6486 and let her know which meeting(s) you can attend. Our goal is to have 10-15 representatives of the Jewish community at each meeting.
