Holocaust Remembrance Day Observed Worldwide

April 16 was Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the observance was honored with ceremonies throughout the world. In Israel, traffic slowed to a halt as two minutes of silence was observed throughout the country in honor of the six million Jews who were murdered during the Nazi regime of terror.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• In his address on the Holocaust, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the proposed nuclear deal with Iran proves that the world hasn’t learned its lesson yet about genocidal regimes.
• The U.S. Senate will get 30 days to approve the terms of any nuclear agreement with Iran.
• Israeli raids have led to the capture of more than 25 Hamas operatives in the West Bank.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on learning from the Holocaust.

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
