“A Day of Destruction” ✡ Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day – ISRAEL365

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

יוֹם שֹׁאָה וּמְשׁוֹאָה יוֹם חֹשֶׁךְ וַאֲפֵלָה יוֹם עָנָן וַעֲרָפֶל

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. This summer, join Rabbi Tuly Weisz on a Tour of Remembrance to Poland, as we memorialize the six million who perished, and strengthen our commitment to God.

Reinstating the Mitzvah That Brings The Third Temple Down From Heaven [PHOTOS]

At Passover’s end, a group of Jews went out to a field in southern Israel and harvested a small quantity of barley for a purely Biblical purpose rarely fulfilled these days: to offer up the omer, or the wave offering, to God.
 

Provide Hot Meals for a Holocaust Survivor

Those who survived the Holocaust are inarguably some of the most resilient and inspiring people this world has ever known. Unfortunately, today, many elderly survivors do not receive enough provisions or the financial assistance required to meet their daily needs. Help sustain them in in their need. Donate $50 today and you can provide a week’s worth of hot meals for one survivor.

Dear friends, I live in the Far North of New Zealand which must be as far away from Israel as you can get so learning Hebrew is unusual. So grateful for technology! -Jacqui Malcolm

May God bless Israel , may His peace be upon the land and the people of Israel for ever. I visited the country 13 times, I learned the language to a good degree, all because God has put love in my heart for Israel and the Jewish people. I am originally from Serbia, but live in Canada. Am yisrael hi. Sarah Crnak

Shalom,
Rabbi Tuly Weisz
