Consulate General of Greece in New York

Holocaust Remembrance Day of the Greek Jewry

The American Sephardi Federation thanks our friend, Dr. Konstantinos Koutras, Consulate General of Greece in New York, for organizing the “Holocaust Remembrance Day of the Greek Jewry,” a remarkable and moving event on 25 January that brought together His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, Rabbi Dr. Martin Cohen of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Solomon Asher of the American Friends of the Jewish Museum of Greece, David Harris of the AJC – Global Jewish Advocacy, US and Greek diplomats, and distinguished board members of The Sephardic Jewish Brotherhood of America and American Sephardi Federation.

“On this day we pay tribute to the victims of the Holocaust.” #WeRemember #NeverAgain #Ολοκαύτωμα #ΠοτέΞανά

This week’s edition of ASF’s Sephardi World Weekly is dedicated in his honor. See: http://stfi.re/ngygybj
