In the early hours of June 28, a vandal shattered one of the New England Holocaust Memorial’s iconic glass panels, causing both physical damage as well as great pain to our local community. On Tuesday, July 11, state and local officials, clergy members, and local organizations will join us for a rededication event as we restore the Memorial.

Governor Charlie Baker; Boston Mayor Martin Walsh; CJP President Barry Shrage; JCRC Executive Director Jeremy Burton; Reverend Nancy Taylor, senior minister and CEO at Old South Church; Rabbi Elaine Zecher, senior rabbi at Temple Israel of Boston; Holocaust survivors and others will offer remarks as a new glass panel is unveiled. Together, they will echo the sentiments expressed by so many last week: Our community is strong, we stand together to help each other, and we reject hatred.

The public is welcome to attend the rededication. Please note that given the surrounding area, space and sight lines may be limited.

Please take into consideration that the Memorial is an outdoor installation with uneven walking surfaces. The start time is approximate. The dedication will be held rain or shine.
