January 27th: International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Throughout history people have tired to extinguish the Jews. Every time they fail because God is on their side and He fights for them. Today the battle to wipe Israel off the map continues with anti Semitism cropping up again--- sneaking into the church with its fancy name "Replacement Theology", and Nations coming against her, but once against they will not succeed because God will fight for them.

This picture is what you see after going through Yad Vashem (the Holocaust Museum)-- in the midst of persecution for generations--- Israel continues to live and they have come back to the Land once again.

Today, I am remembering the 6 million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust: the children who's names I heard as I walked into the first section of Yad Vashem, the families, the single people, the elderly--- I saw their pictures, I read their names, and read their stories. I remember my relative, Bina Bornshtein, and possibly other relatives who's names I don't know. And I remember those who miraculously survived like my adopted grandparents, Michael and Sema.

There is hope
if we cry out with praise him all together
[b/c] faith is stronger than fear
[we] won't "fall", won't tremble
b/c we are not alone
we have the one G-d
(Benny Friedman)
