The Holocaust Commission encourages teachers, students, and the community to apply the lessons of history to the moral decisions they make each day. The Commission offers programs, resources, and holds community events related to Holocaust education and remembrance. Dedicated volunteers from the community guide and foster the Holocaust Commission’s work.

Among its many events and programs, the Holocaust Commission offers What We Carry, a multimedia program for schools, community, and military groups; a yearly community gathering for Yom Hashoah, the commemoration day of the Holocaust; the annual Elie Wiesel Writing and Visual Arts Competitions for students; annual educators’ awards, and Biennial Educators’ Conferences. The Holocaust Commission’s website provides more information on how to participate in and support its various programs.
