Phoenix Holocaust Association
Phoenix Holocaust Association Mission. As a partnership of Holocaust survivors, their descendants and the larger community, we honor the memory and legacy of the survivors and victims, promote awareness of the Holocaust, provide education of this and other genocides, and contribute to tikkun olam, repair of the world.
Phoenix Holocaust Association Vision. As a unique, regional resource for Holocaust education and remembrance, PHA promotes human dignity by inspiring people to speak out and take action against hate, bigotry, intolerance and discrimination.
The Phoenix Holocaust Association has facilitated the documenting of the Holocaust experiences of survivors in our community and led our community in remembrance of the Holocaust as as part of a long history of active involvement in both the local and national Holocaust education and remembrance organizations.
The Phoenix Holocaust Association continues our mission today through a number of activities including:
- Facilitating monthly Café Europa gatherings for Holocaust Survivor and other members of the community
- Recognizing important contributions to teaching of the Holocaust and Genocide Awareness through its Shofar Zahor Awards
- Coordinating the annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration
- Sponsoring a variety of educational programs including Genocide Awareness Week’s Focus on the Holocaust Day at Scottsdale Community College
- Providing speakers to the community
The Phoenix Holocaust Association members include Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, 2nd Generation and 3rd Generation descendants, as well as individuals who support the purposes of the Phoenix Holocaust Association.
The Phoenix Holocaust Association, following initial founding meetings beginning in 1982, was incorporated in Phoenix, Arizona in 1985 as a non-profit corporation which is recognized as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
