Toda Rabah

Thank you for posting this series. I was in Israel at the first Holocaust museum on the Templemount and took some pictures...because they are trying to erase this from history, like it did not happen. HaShem is in control and even this DARK DARK piece of history will be used to HIS glory! WE NEED TO ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TURN TO HIM WITH ALL OUR GOOD AND BAD LIFE EXPERIENCES :) Shalom chaverim ani

a good job

I am a Gentile and have always felt a strong affinity for the Jewish people, ever since I saw a TV show about the Holocaust called "You Are There". It must have been in the mid 50's, several years after the war. I was a young girl and I cried. I later found out that my great uncle and aunt were in a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia - my great uncle was killed there by the Nazis. My mother's aunt visited us once and she was telling my mother (in their native language) about her experience. Of course I could not understand a word, but my mother was crying. Then Aunt Emma showed us her feet, that had become twisted and gnarled from the cold. Maybe because I was so young, that was enough information to make a big impression. I have always had many Jewish friends and have had several Jewish employers. I had a wonderful boss who used to say there was a mix-up in the nursery when I was born and I was sent home with the wrong parents. Through my associations I picked up a lot of Yiddish expressions and probably other mannerisms as well. This short video has moved me to tears. I will never forget it and will talk about it every chance I get - to never let people forget. Maybe this simple lesson will have have the same impact on others who don't want to hear. Thank you.

Thanks!!!!!

Shalom Rabbi Salomon, And here I am complaining about my job; my no-way out job. A Rabbi once told me that no matter how bad a situation may look, G'd will always bring something positive out of it; in this case I do not know what to say. I think that from all of the videos that I've seen, this is the have impresses me the most. Thank you, thank you a million times for making me see all the great things HaShem has given me. Another wake up call.
