Commemorating Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day

Commemorating Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day

On Monday morning, a siren will sound throughout Israel. All work and activity will stop – as Jews silently remember the darkest period in their history, the Holocaust. Called Yom HaShoah in Hebrew, this day in Israel is one of solemn remembrance of the six million Jews killed under the evil and murderous regime of Adolf Hitler. Jews will light candles for victims of this genocide and gather to listen to the stories of the survivors left.

The majority of Christians remained heartbreakingly silent while their Jewish brothers and sisters were being murdered.

Today, antisemitism is rising to levels not seen in decades. In 2018, assaults against Jews doubled. In 2019, we saw an increase in violence against Jews. In 2020, we saw the rise of antisemitic hate on social media and in person against Jews worldwide, especially related to COVID-19. And in 2022, antisemitism reached a record-level high.

Yet this time, Christians are not standing idly by while Jews are being attacked. This time, Christians stand by the promise Never Again and rally to action with the oath, “For Zion’s sake, we will not rest or be silent.”
