Historically, the Jewish community of New Haven offers a special program “Kever Avot” the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur for survivor families to come together to recite kaddish. Since survivors have no cemetery to visit, the Holocaust Memorial on Whalley Avenue provides the venue for the gathering. This year, we will join together in a whole new VIRTUAL way! Look out for an email of the recorded ceremony in your inblox the morning of Sunday, September 27.

Please note that all events offered by the Jewish Federation, Foundation, and JCC of Greater New Haven may include photography. Photos taken at events may be used in our social media, websites, and in print materials to support the objectives of our organizations and to promote future events.  We respect our patrons' privacy.
