Remembering the Shoah: NEVER AGAIN


From EBL

Children on their way to the Chelmno extermination camp.

Children.  Over a million children were murdered.

I look at my children; sweet, tender, loving children who pepper me with kisses.  Who hug me at night and call me DADDY.  Who help others, who put money in the tzedakah box every Shabbat evening so that when it's full they can help others with that money they've put aside.

Never again.  I take it deadly seriously.  Too many of my fellow American Jews view it as a punchline and forget the basic lesson: if it can happen once, it can happen again.

  1. Every one of those kids were just like your kids.

    If you are slack in the day of distress,
    Your strength is limited.
    Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
    And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
    If you say, “See, we did not know this,”
    Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
    And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
    And will He not render to man according to his work?

    Proverbs 24:10-13

    God will hold us all accountable if it happens again and we do nothing.
