The annual community Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, will feature Dr. Al Munzer as the guest speaker. Munzer was hidden as a child in the Netherlands by an Indonesian family and their Muslim nanny whom he knew as his mother until he was four years old and was reunited with his true mother. Munzer lost his father and two sisters to the Nazis. Munzer and his mother immigrated to the United States, and now this retired lung specialist is a volunteer docent at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Winners of 2022 Elie Wiesel Student Competitions in writing and visual art, as well as the 2022 Educator Award winners will be announced.
