Welcome to the Teaneck Holocaust Commemoration Committee
The Teaneck Holocaust Commemoration Committee, a division of the Jewish
Community Council of Teaneck, was formed to perpetuate the memory of the Holocaust and assure
that the memories of the 6 million Jews who perished will never be forgotten. The Committee also
seeks to provide the greater Teaneck, New Jersey community with quality programming and resources
to increase awareness of the tragedy of the Holocaust.
The Committee presents various educational programs throughout the year,
culminating with the largest Holocaust Commemoration in Bergen County attracting 1,000 people
annually. Additional programming includes inviting Holocaust survivors to speak to students at
Teaneck High School and local middle and charter schools as well as an art or photo exhibit
displayed at the Teaneck Public Library during the month of May.
This year's Holocaust Commemoration Event is on May 4th, 2016 at 7:30 PM at Teaneck High School.
The Special Pre-Event Reception For Survivors & Their Familes Begins at 6 PM.

memorializing those who were killed during the Shoa with an extensive educational
outdoor exhibit that will incorporate the latest museum technology
to allow visitors an enriching, meaningful experience.
