Congregation Beth Ahm’s Cantor Marsha Schreier performs at the dedication of the synagogue’s Holocaust-9/11 Memorial. Situated on the temple’s north lawn, and dedicated to both the Jewish and non-Jewish victims of the Holocaust,  the railroad tracks evoke the trains which delivered the victims to the death camps. There are 11 railroad ties, symbolizing both 9/11 and the approximate total of 11 million persons who died in the Holocaust.
