Commemorating Yom HaShoah

Today is Yom HaShoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time to honor those who were murdered during that horrible chapter in history and give thanks for those who fought back against Nazi evil. It’s also a time when we reaffirm our resolve that never again will we allow such anti-Semitism – or hate of any kind – to run so rampant and deadly.Among the many commemorations taking place in Israel, some of the largest happen at Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust museum. During their opening ceremony, six survivors lit the memorial torches, symbolizing the 6 million Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust.Above Dov Shimoni lights a torch – read his inspiring story here.
