"A Day of Destruction and Desolation" ✡ Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah)

A day of destruction and desolation, a day of blackness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness.

Yom HaShoah

Today marks Holocaust Remembrance Day, which in Hebrew is called “Yom HaShoah” and comes from our verse in Zephaniah describing the devastating destruction of Jerusalem. Yom HaShoah was established by the Knesset and coincides with the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising, remembering not only the destruction of European Jewry, but recalling the heroic revolt. On this day, let us memorialize the six million who perished by strengthening our commitment to God, and intensifying our Torah learning.
