Holocaust Day .....of Remembrance


Holocaust Day, a day of remembrance for six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust.

There are troubling parallels between the systematic vilification of Jews before the Holocaust and the current vilification of the Jewish people and Israel. Suffice it to note the annual flood of anti-Israel resolutions at the UN.

If remembering Auschwitz should teach us anything, it is that we must all support Israel and the Jewish people
against the vilification and the complicity we are witnessing, knowing where it inevitably leads.

Mark sent me this, thank you Mark.

According to the Jewish Virtual Library:

Holocaust Memorial Day (Yom Ha-Shoah)

"The full name of the day commemorating the victims of the Holocaust is “Yom Hashoah Ve-Hagevurah”— literally the "Day of (remembrance of) the Holocaust and the Heroism." It is marked on the 27th day in the month of Nisan — a week after the seventh day of Passover, and a week before Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day for Israel's fallen soldiers). It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

The date was selected by the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) on April 12, 1951. The full name became formal in a law that was enacted by the Knesset on August 19, 1953. Although the date was established by the Israeli government, it has become a day commemorated by Jewish communities and individuals worldwide."


....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

"Never again", I hope. The MiddleEast is always dangerous, especially for Israel. With the muslim president we have, Israel's fate is in even more danger than usual. Prayers are needed.
