Every Person Has a Name will be held on the steps of Pasadena City Hall on Saturday, January 26 – Sunday, January 27, 2019. The program will begin with a commemoration ceremony at 7:00pm and then will be followed immediately with a 24-hour vigil of reading the names of those who perished during the Holocaust. This event coincides with the UN International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of liberation of the Auschwitz death camp.
The commemoration ceremony will feature speeches from Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek, Congresswoman Judy Chu, LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, State Senator Anthony Portantino, State Assemblymember Blanca Rubio, State Assemblymember Chris Holden (invited), local clergy, as well as performances by the Jewish Federation’s Jewish Youth Orchestra and Kol HaEmek, our community choir. In addition, we are also inviting our community’s “survivors” to attend and participate in the reading of names, along with volunteers from the community.
Sign up to be a volunteer to read names.
