Garden of RemembranceThe Garden of Remembrance, located at the Michaelian Office Building at 148 Martine Avenue in White Plains, was created by the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center, formerly known as both the Westchester Holocaust Education Center and the Westchester Holocaust Commission, to honor the memories of the millions of men, women and children destroyed in the Holocaust and to pay tribute to the brave people of all faiths who risked their lives to save others.

Within the Garden stand the “Gates of Remembrance,” created by sculptor Rita Rapaport to memorialize the suffering and death of millions during the Nazi era from 1933 to 1945.

The posts supporting the gates look blown by the wind. They evoke the memories of the flames or chimneys of the crematoria. To some, they will resemble the Hebrew letter Vov, which represents the number six, for the six days of creation, or the six million Jewish victims. The gates themselves may symbolize the bars of a prison or the entrances to concentration camps.

The five plaques on the gates depict images meaning Zachor, or Remember, torn fabric bearing a prisoner's number; barbed wire representing concentration camps; the Bible in flames commemorating Kristallnacht, when the Holocaust began; and the broken tablets of the Ten Commandments.

The garden walls are inscribed with the names of 26 places where Jews and other victims of Nazi persecution were tortured and murdered. These names represent only some of the many hundreds of locations where recorded and unrecorded atrocities occurred. Other stones in the garden bear inscriptions of inspirational quotes from philosophers and authors.

The garden provides a unique setting for study, reflection and remembrance appropriate for religious services, field trips for school groups, and community events. For reservations and more information, call the HHREC at (914) 696.0738 or email .

JayPropertyThe 23-acre Jay property overlooking Long Island Sound in Rye is the boyhood home of New York State’s only native founding father, John Jay (1745-1829). It is part of the Boston Post Road Historic District, a National Historic Landmark and a stop on Westchester County’s African American Heritage Trail.

The 1838 Greek Revival mansion, which is the centerpiece of the property, was built by Peter Augustus Jay. The mansion is being restored and managed by the not-for-profit organization, the Jay Heritage Center (JHC). The 1907 Van Norden Carriage House is a second building being restored and serves as the JHC Visitor and Education Center.

The Jay property, originally acquired by Westchester County in 1992, is an important piece of designated parkland to the Westchester County parks system. It is an environmentally significant area that serves as the headlands of the watershed of the adjacent county park, Marshlands Conservancy. The Jay property has been owned in conjunction with New York State since 1997 and is managed by Westchester County Parks as dedicated state and county parkland. It is used for recreation, historic education and conservation purposes.
