2022 Yom Hashoah Service

Michael Rush, member of the board of delegates at the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne

This week on WBOI Presents, we are listening back to the Yom HaShoah program organized by the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne. The event serves as a commemoration for the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, and the heroism of survivors and rescuers. Governor Eric Holcomb and Mayor Tom Henry both addressed the event virtually. The keynote speaker for the event was Chad Austin, professor of law, deputy for faculty development, and co-director of international programs at the United State Air Force Academy Department of Law.
