Honoring Holocaust survivors

Honoring Holocaust survivors

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE of MetroWest NJ (JFS MetroWest) will partner with The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) to honor Holocaust survivors with a candle-lighting ceremony on Dec. 4.

JFS MetroWest’s ceremony will be led by Gov. Phil Murphy and Roman Kent, Holocaust survivor and chairman of the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants.

“We are honored to welcome Gov. Phil Murphy and Roman Kent to our Chanukah Café Europa program,” said JFS MetroWest CEO Diane K. Squadron. “We value our partnership with The Claims Conference, which enables us to meet the increasing needs of Holocaust survivors in our community.”

The Claims Conference is a longtime partner of JFS MetroWest, enabling the agency to serve over 100 Holocaust survivors annually. Funding from the Claims Conference, supports home care, meals, and socialization programs, such as Café Europa. 

This event will mark the second annual International Holocaust Survivor’s Night and similar programs will be taking place in Berlin, Jerusalem, and Moscow.
