Today We Remember

Today we remember those who perished, those we never met, those we’ll never forget. Today we remember those who lived, those who survived, those who thrived so that we could be here today.

I know I wouldn’t be here today without my grandparents’ utter heroism, determination and will to live.

In honor of Yom Ha’shoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, I’d like to share an excerpt from the story of Yitzchak Sarid. Yitzchak lived by the words, דעו שמשריד נבנתם” “Know that you came from a remnant,” which encapsulates the sentiment of this day perfectly.
