Service commemorates Night of broken glass

The NSW Council of Christians and Jews is holding its annual commemoration of Kristallnacht (Night of broken glass) in Sydney Square, alongside Sydney Town Hall, at 12 noon on Friday, November 7.

Rabbi Dr Jeffrey Cohen, president of the council, will conduct the service.

The 45-minute service is held on the first Friday of November in memory of the victims of concentration camps in Eastern Europe during World War II and ends with the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn, as a symbol of hope that such violence against Jews will not be repeated.

Kristallnach is so called because of the night in November 1938 when thousands of synagogues, Jewish shops and homes throughout Germany were attacked and burned.

The service’s usual location, Martin Place, is unavailable this year; it is the centre for Rugby World Cup festivities.
