OKC Yom HaShoah Program: "Hitkansut" (Gathering)

Cohen Chapel

The Van Leer Institute in Jerusalem initiated Hitkansut to commemorate the Shoah. The attendees of Hitkansut sit around a large table, and read poems and testimonies of survivors and victims while telling the stories of their own families and communities.

It is a very emotional and personal ritual that includes special prayers and music.

The number of participants is limited. Please RSVP to Hagar at hnetser [at] ohrkodesh [dot] org.
