Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Ha' Shoa)

(Hat Tip:

Although I try to focus mainly on the positive aspects about Israel (and there is some good news at the end of this post), one must never forget about the horrible tragedy around seventy years ago.

Today (or rather yesterday) is a time where life in Israel comes to a complete stop--literally--and all remember the six million who fell victim because of one mad man's nightmare.

Warning: Some images may not be suitable for children or work.

May God forgive us for allowing this tragedy to occur.


On a more (semi) positive note, it appears that no Jews were injured after the Virginia Tech shootings that took place today.

(Ynet) Israeli embassy in the US has been following the goings on at the Virginia Tech University, following a shooting rampage on campus that killed 33 people, including the shooter.

As soon as the embassy was informed of the attack, it started to locate all of the Israeli students and lecturers in the university and has reported that they are all safe and sound. (Yitzhak Benhorin – Washington)

Thank God! God bless everyone, and more good news about Israel will be posted tomorrow.

Update: Unfortunately, one Israeli professor was killed in VA Tech. Israel Today has the story. :-(
