Boulder Marks Yom HaShoah

Several Holocaust survivors told their moving stories at the community Yom HaShoah service on Sunday night organized by Haver and held at Congregation Har HaShem.  The overwhelming theme this year seemed to be that we must not be silent in the face of such evil, but must speak out against genocide or “ethnic cleansing” wherever it may occur.

Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi read a “dirge” to the town of Oswiecim, where his father lived before the war, and Moriah Yehudis Fishman also gave a teaching.   BJN will post videos of the speakers tomorrow. 

How ironic that we heard the news about Osama bin Ladin’s death immediately following the service.

Here are some pictures:

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
