Yom HaShoah 2023
Join Boston 3G, along with Israeli American Council (IAC), JCRC & CJP to honor Holocaust Remembrance Day and become part of the action. Boston 3G will start the day joining in the IAC 6 Million Steps walk from the Boston State House to the New England Holocaust Memorial.
After a brief and moving ceremony, we will then make our own impact in the community and call attention to the 6 million, including 1.2 million children lost in the Holocaust through a unique and modern twist on a "moment of silence." As part of the tribute, 3Gs (the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors) invite you all to join us as we link arms creating a chain of protection for 6 minutes surrounding the New England Holocaust Memorial. We are truly the "last living link", the last to know the survivors and hear their stories first-hand.
"It is for them, our families, and for all those who perished, that we, as the third generation, will stand together in order to educate, protect and preserve the memory of the Holocaust," said Boston 3G President Lisa Einstein.
The more people the stronger the impact!

6 Million Steps
In remembrance of the Holocaust, we invite you to take part in an international effort to complete 6 million steps in each community. We will walk together from the MA State House, located at 24 Beacon St, Boston, to The New England Holocaust Memorial. Count your steps and show respect to the six million victims of the Holocaust. Steps can be logged here.
4Gs Rocks of Remembrance
Passing on the legacy and stories of the Holocaust to the next generation (4Gs) is a huge priority of Boston 3G. We will be providing rocks for all kids to paint during the ceremony at the NEHM and then participate in a processional placing their stone as a rock of remembrance on the headstone of the Memorial.
"Last Living Link"
Join us for this unique moment of 6 minutes of silence as we circle the NE Holocaust Memorial, linking arms creating a chain and vowing to protect its legacy. We will provide T-shirts and signs to attendees to help make an impact and spread the message of Never Forget.
