Israel Holocaust Remembrance Day + More

May 2, 2011 at 10:41 am Leave a comment

 Dear Friends,

In a remarkable set of coincidences, Osama bin Laden was assassinated, Israel recognized Holocaust Remembrance Day and last night, CBS’ 60 Minutes showed a shocking incident of crowd violence and sexual assault, which included an anti-Semitic remark about the victim by perpetrators. Click HERE to see a video** of a truly despicable detailed description of a hate crime and HERE for the haunting transcript** from the show. Significant is the fact that an anti-Israel/anti-Semitic slur was used to ferment such an extremely vicious attack.

Parallel with the above, is an announcement today of a new project by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee called “Our Shared Legacy”. CLICK HERE to learn how you can search the data base of names and photographs and participate.

At this very special moment of Holocaust Remembrance, current events like this re-invigorate our commitment to push back against the seemingly endless and timeless injustices of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiments. We think you will agree, each one of us can play, however small, an important role in insuring “Never Again.”  

With deep appreciation for your involvement,

 Harriet and Bill

** Video and Transcript are extremely disturbing
