Yom HaShoah is a stark reminder of the tremendous cost of not having a Jewish State prior to the Holocaust, which demonstrated just how vulnerable Jews were in the diaspora before the existence of the State of Israel.
This coming Wednesday, May 4th, Israel will observe its second Memorial Day, Yom HaZikaron. This is a somber day of remembrance of all those who have died in defense of the Jewish State and Israeli civilians murdered by terrorists. Commemoration ceremonies are held across the country and flags are lowered to half-mast.
Yom HaZikaron reminds Israelis of the cost of having their own state as they mourn the loss of those who have given their lives to protect their fellow citizens and innocent civilians murdered simply because they chose to live in the Jewish state.
The Consulate General of Israel to New England
has invited Christians and Jews United for Israel
