Yom Hashoah UK - 2 pm This Sunday 19 April, Barnet Copthall StadiumApril 16, 2015
The UK Jewish Community's National Holocaust Remembrance Commemoration will take place at 2pm this Sunday 19 April at Barnet Copthall Stadium, Hendon, London NW4 1RL.
The aim is for this event to be the largest Remembrance gathering ever held by British Jewry in this 70th year of commemoration.
A "lifespan" of 70 years might have passed but this commemoration and remembrance will ensure that the Victims have not and will never be forgotten, nor did they perish in vain.
This campaign has the support of the United Synagogue and incorporates the closing ceremony of the 70 Days for 70 Years US Living and Learning Initiative.
For security reasons and to obtain a parking permit, pre-registration is required. To register and for more information click HERE. It is not too late to register on Motsei Shabbat.
he tragedy of the death of Aaron’s two eldest sons is an inescapable focus point of Parshat Shmini.
The cause of their deaths is a subject of much discussion, but I would like to focus our attention on their father’s reaction. We are told “And Aaron was silent”. If Aaron did not say anything then why did the Torah comment on his silence?
