Her book will be available for sale after the commemoration. The honorary chairman of the event is Lou Frey, Jr. He represented Central Florida in the U.S. Congress from 1969 to 1979. Musical selections will be performed by Dr. Aaron Hil- bun, oboist with the Florida Gulf Coast University and the Bower School of Music; Lisa Ferrigno, violinist with the Brevard Symphony Or: chestra where she serves as concertmaster; and Norma Huff, cellist with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. The national anthems will be sung by Valerie Kahn. Rabbi Jonathan Siger, director of Central Florida Hillel; the Rev. Ken Garrison of the Fellow- ship Church of Casselberry; and Bruce Mount, mayor of Eatonville, will also partici- pate in the program. Winners of the annual Cre- ative Arts Contest, in which more than 600 students par- ticipated, will be recognized. The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is "Yore HaShoah Ve-Hagevurah"-- literally the "Day of (remem- brance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism." It is marked on the 27th day in the month of Nisan--a week after the seventh day of Passover and a week before Yom Hazikaron (The Memorial Day for Israel's fallen soldiers). It also marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. The date was selected by the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) on April 12, 1951. The full name became formal in a law that was enacted by the Knes- set on Aug. 19,1953. Although the date was established by the Israeli government, it has become a day commemorated by Jewish communities and individuals worldwide. Since the early 1960s, the sound of a siren on Yom HaShoah stops traffic and pedestrians throughout the State of Israel for two min- utes of silent devotion. The siren blows at 10 a.m. on this date. All radio and television programs during this day are connected in one way or another with the Jewish des- tiny in World War II, includ- ing personal interviews with survivors. Even the musical programs are adapted to the atmosphere ofYom HaShoah. There is no public entertain- ment on Yom HaShoah, as theaters, cinemas, pubs and other publicvenues are closed throughout Israel. Yom HaShoah holds great meaning for Jews worldwide. The overwhelming theme that runs through all observances is the importance of remem- bering-recalling the victims of this catastrophe and insur- ing that such a tragedy never happen again. The Holocaust memo- rial Resource and Education Center will be open after the program. On exhibit is Wedding Tales, art by Leora Wise of Jerusalem. For more information: 407-628-0555.
