It is hard to believe that after almost 70 years following the end of World War II, we are still gathering testimony from survivors. But the work must go on. The names of loved ones cannot be forgotten in the sands of time. As Zelda Schneerson Mishkovsky, a descendant of the third Lubavitcher Rebbe and a poet, wrote in Every Man has a Name:
“Every man has a name/ Given him by G-d/ And given by his father and his mother./ Every man has a name/ Given him by his stature and his way of smiling.”

To properly fulfill the mitzvah of listening to the megillah, each word must be heard.
Criticism is but one step below a verbal attack. It isn’t quite as pointed, not quite as aggressive – but not that far off.
The talmid is not allowed to speak up due to any fear. If he remains silent, he is in violation of this prohibition.

When Yoram got home that evening, he went over to Effy: “My day camp is looking for extra supervision for an overnight trip,” he said. “Would you like to come? They’re paying $250 for the trip.”

Just as the moon waxes, wanes and renews itself, so has the nation of Israel renewed itself through the millennia.
Our loved ones seem present though we can no longer see them or be with them, just as it is with God
It was a few minutes after sunrise. A new day had begun, and everyone was preparing for work, school and shopping for Shabbat. But the sun was setting slowly in our basement, as it was setting calmly for my mother-in-law. It was time for her to take leave of family, children and everything in this world.
Rosh Hashanah memories take us to our shuls, homes and families. They remind us of promises made about how we would change our lives and rearrange our priorities. There may also be memories of the delicacies we ate when we were children – the chicken soup, gefilte fish and great desserts. And one sound, the sound of the shofar blasting away with its shrill notes of tekiah, shevarim… and finally the long, very last sound – the tekiah gedolah.
A little more than six months ago, my sister-in-law passed away after battling a serious illness. For more than 30 years she had given symposiums on the Holocaust to youngsters in the Philadelphia area, and we talked about her activities many times on our visits to the U.S. After her passing I was determined to do some kind of volunteer work for Yad Vashem in her memory.
