This chapter contains Ezekiel's famous vision of the valley of dry bones coming to life. In the prophet's time, Israel was destroyed and the people scattered to the four corners of the earth. Yet, when God asks Ezekiel "can these bones live?" he doesn't express doubt or hopelessness. He answers that anything can happen if it is God's will! In our days, we stand witness to this truth, as from the ashes of the Holocaust came the birth of the modern State of Israel. Today we remember the six million who perished at the hands of the Nazis during World War II. Each survivor brings with them a story of perseverance, even in the face of evil, and they stand as a living testament to the perils that face humanity should anti-Semitism rise again. Seventy years later, we have an obligation to support those few remaining survivors and ensure that their final years are filled with happiness and peace.

Join one survivor as he gazes upon a tremendous sculpture that stands in Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. The sculpture depicts the faces of nameless individuals whose lives were snuffed out in the name of hatred and anti-Semitism more than 70 years ago.
For 2,000 years we have mourned together over the destruction of Jerusalem, the Temple and the other countless tragedies of Jewish history including the Holocaust. In modern times, we have begun to experience the rebirth of the Land of Israel and Jerusalem. May we merit to see God's comfort, and the fulfillment of the rest of the redemption, through the coming of the Messiah and the immediate building of the Third Temple.
Every prisoner sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp in Poland during World War II was tattooed with a number, thereby erasing their names and by extension their entire identities. Seventy years later, their tattoos stand as a testament to the horrors they experienced.
