Tomorrow, 2 December 2021, the Ambassador of the United States to Israel H.E. Mr. Thomas Nides will visit Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center. Ambassador Nides will tour the Holocaust History Museum and take part in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, which will include the recitation of El Maleh Rahamim, the Jewish prayer for the souls of the martyrs, by Cantor Asher Heinowitz. Following the ceremony, Ambassador Nides will visit the Children’s Memorial and sign the Yad Vashem Guestbook. He will then proceed to the Archives, where he will be given a behind-the-scenes tour. A discussion between the Ambassador and Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan and Dr. Robert Rozett, Senior Historian of Yad Vashem's International Institute for Holocaust Research, will focus on Holocaust denial and antisemitism. The visit will conclude with a Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony using a menorah from the Yad Vashem Artifacts Collection.
