|On May 5, Cantor Ida Rae Cahana and others convened in Pioneer Courthouse Square and took turns reading the names of Jews who died in the Holocaust for national Holocaust Remembrance Day. "Remembering the Holocaust is so important to the future," said Joanne Van Ness Menashe, CBI congregant and director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland. "There are still people who deny that it existed. Reading the names helps remind people that it was real." (photo courtesy of Lisa Stiller)
