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.
