In 2020, UJS launched a campaign to commemorate Yom Hashoah virtually, no matter where you are in the world, and no matter your resources. As many of us cannot leave our houses, we commemorated by using an item that brings about light and take a photo of it in a dark room. This could be anything, including a candle, a match, a lighter or a torch light from a phone.
It was posted on social media with the #OutoftheDarkness and UJS was tagged. The out the darkness campaign 2020 encouraged students to create their own light of remembrance to show that they will never forget.
We all must remember the Shoah to ensure that that we continue to learn from the lessons of the past. Through hardship and division, we have shown that we are able to stand together through the uncertain times and come out of the Darkness and towards the light.
