The Holocaust Remembrance Wall Has Been Restored


Congratulations to CBH for we raised well over our funding goal to resurrect this significant part of our community's history.  We are thrilled that our membership came forward to make this project a reality.  Our initial goal was to raise $10,000 for the basic reconstruction of the walls on our campus. Now that we raised over $16,000 we will be able to make sure this area is nicely landscaped with proper irrigation and pleasant viewing areas.  We had hoped to provide some new seating for resting or quiet contemplation and we now have the funds to do so.  Thank you all again!

In 1990, Congregation Bet Haverim decided to build a beautiful ceramic tile wall, which was crafted by CBH partners including many children who are now adults in our community, as a permanent memorial relating to the Holocaust. With the help of many donations from participating families the Holocaust Remembrance Wall was created and installed on the synagogue grounds as a reminder of a horrific blight on the history of mankind that should never, ever, be forgotten.

In 2004, as our membership grew, the congregation was able to move across town to a larger building. Volunteers carefully took down the tile wall and transported it to temporary storage at our new location. Unfortunately, the expense of acquiring and maintaining our new home, along with the cost of reinstallation, have prevented us from being able to again display this beautiful wall.

Sadly, the messages on the wall now seem more timely than ever. It appears we may once again be entering a time when seemingly unadulterated hatred based on nothing other than race, religion or ethnicity is being offered as justification for senseless acts of violence. Come and enjoy the peaceful new meditation area facing the wall!
