The Interfaith Service is an Annual Community Interfaith Holocaust & Human Rights Commemoration program for the community co-sponsored by the HHREC and the Eastchester-Bronxville-Tuckahoe Coalition for Building Bridges for Better Understanding. The HHREC also sponsors an art and essay contest each year open to students of Eastchester, Bronxville and Tuckahoe High School and presents awards to the winners at the opening of each year's service.
For the past 18 years the Interfaith commemoration service is rotated between participating towns and houses of worship. Please watch our calendar of events for date, time and location.
IN THE MIDST OF ADVERSITY, ONE PERSON MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Why do we have the Community Interfaith Holocaust and Human Rights Commemoration each year? We have it for many reasons. We have it because we want to make the community and the world in which we live a better place by living up to the creed of "never again" by preventing genocides, atrocities and, locally, bias incidents. We have it because we want the community of young people and adults to recognize that they can make a difference by becoming upstanders. We must do everything that we can to learn from the past and stop these evils.
