What is the proper greeting on Yom hashoah? I am not Jewish but do have some Jewish friends and would like to know how to greet them on this day of remembrance.

    Hello -- while your question is thought provoking, as Yom Hashoah is not, strictly speaking, a religious holiday, it might be difficult to answer from within a context of Jewish law.

Yom Hashoa is the official Israeli Remembrance Day and it only reflects governmental aspects, not interpersonal.

While on a political level, there are lots of ceremonies, no change in personal conduct is expected, like no changes in clothes, talk, activities, greetings etc.
