Holocaust Remembrance Day

Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today, April 21, 2009, marks Holocaust Remembrance Day, in Hebrew, Yom HaShoah. We remember the six million Jewish lives that perished during World War II due to the anti-Semitic and anti-Judaic ideology and political policies of the Nazi regime. May the Holy One of heaven and earth preserve and protect the Jewish people from such evil happening to them again. This year the focus is on the children who perished during the Shoah. You can read about it here.  If you live in a community where Holocaust Remembrance Day is observed, please attend the service.

  1. What a lovely post 🙂

    I’m Jewish, and very interested in Jewish – Christian dialogue; I believe it is of vital importance.

    If you have a few spare minutes at any point, please feel most welcome to stop by my blog; I’ve posted a few things on Jewish beliefs and questions that Christians often ask of Jews. I hope to write more about Jewish-Christian relations in the near future, as well.

    Best wishes and again, lovely post 🙂

    Shalom 🙂
