Holocaust Remembrance Service

Sunday, April 11, 2021 29 Nisan 5781

3:00 PM - 4:00

To honor the lives that were lost during one of humanity’s worst moments, our community remembers the Holocaust with an annual ecumenical service. Through our remembering and active cooperation, we strive to obliterate injustice.  

The service can be viewed
   on the website:   
   or Facebook page:


The annual Literary & Arts competition now includes an essay for Middle School Students, and the High School competitions have more categories than ever before here: Essay, Poetry, Art, Music, Video. Winning entries will all be presented during the service.

Eleven candles will be lit to honor the memories of eleven million people who lost their lives during the Holocaust. One candle will be lit to represent the modern tragedies due to hatred, prejudice and injustice.

We will share prayers and memories.

The event is scheduled to be held at Broadmoor United Methodist Church, however, only those participating in the service will be in-person. This will include the winners of the literary competition, candle lighters, etc.

This year the Chair will be Bishop L. Lawrence Brandon. He is Senior Pastor and CEO of Praise Temple and Presiding Bishop of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, International. It is Bishop Brandon's earnest prayer that every person he comes in contact with is blessed, challenged, inspired and changed. His motto is “We are better together." 

Go to for details about the service, and the Arts and Literature Competition for middle school and high school students.

Donations to help fund the event or competition can be made online or by contacting the North Louisiana Jewish Federation.
