Yom HaShoah: Memory, Identity and Connection

We remember the 6 million Jews who lost their lives simply for being Jews. But the memory of those we have lost is never far from our minds and hearts.

Civilized nations remained silent as an entire world was nearly destroyed. It is our responsibility that we shall never remain silent in the face of memory even as we move further away from the tragedy that took the lives of so many.

Yom HaShoah in Israel through Photographs and Songs

While listening to songs heard throughout Israel during Yom HaShoah, witness photographs of brave men and women who were lost to us during the Holocaust. We will never forget.

There will always be an echo of the dream of those victims who perished believing in the words of Hatikvah that someday we might be able to fulfill the 2000 year old dream and return to our ancient homeland to live free as Jews in a Jewish State.
