The theater was unusually dark and nearly silent. The only sound that could be heard was the rustling of students’ shoes against the carpet as they looked for their seats. Within a couple minutes, the rustling had ceased and the presentation began.

In order to commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, sophomores, who are completing a unit on the Holocaust in their Modern Jewish History class, produced a commemorative presentation, facilitated a live-streamed vigil and hung posters in hallways to invoke meaning as students and teachers walked through. Throughout the day, the theme was physical, spiritual and cultural resistance. The Lion’s Tale caught up with students and faculty after the vigil and assembly to get a sense of what Yom HaShoah at CESJDS meant to them.
