This evening begins Yom HaShoah, the day on which we remember the Six Million Jews murdered in the Holocaust. We will add prayers to our liturgy that recall the atrocities committed against us in those dark times, and in our homes, we will light a memorial candle - real or virtual - whose pale, dim flame serves as testament to the lives lost and families destroyed. This Yom HaShoah, we remember what hatred and evil can do to a people, a religion, a world, when it goes unchecked and unchallenged. We remember a culture and way of life that was destroyed. We remember the men, women and children who suffered and whose lives were taken from them because they were Jewish. We remember what happens when hatred and bigotry rear their terrible heads and go unchecked by the world. We remember, six million times, we remember while we resolve ourselves that their memories will inspire us, teach us and that we will keep their memories for a blessing.
