I agree 100%

Dearest Rabbi..I always enjoy hearing your thoughts on a variety of subjects and especially this one. Where I live we have a Holocaust Memorial Center. That is where that sort of display belongs and not where it will not get the kind of response that it so deserves.

I'm from Brazil and I was very upset to know about the plans to take such a float to the parade. Furthermore, knowing what is involved during the preparation and display of those floats, I can't help but wonder the real motivation of the people behind it. I'm glad the float was not allowed to enter the parade. It was not the time, nor the place.

Bad Taste!

It's extremely bad taste to have a Holocaust float in that parade. Whoever thought of this idea has gone too far! Can you imagine such a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade?!

You are absolutely correct about it not being the time nor the place. It's in bad taste. I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would dare to display something
so holy and painful moments in our history. I pray that this display doesn't take place. It is not the place nor the time. My goodness, how horrid.
