Rabbi Stein's Sermon for Yom HaShoa Shabbat 2019

Never Again

Yom HaShoa Observance
May 3, 2019/28 Nisan 5779
Rabbi Peter W. Stein

 

Growing up, I attended a small Yiddish cultural school for several years.  Aside from the Yiddish language and culture, the emphasis of the program was on Jewish history…and in a way, the primary focus was on creating Jewish pride.

My teacher, who was not only a teacher but a loving mentor to all his students, was a man who was born in a small town called Oshmiany, near Vilnius.  He survived the Holocaust by moving east and becoming a fighter.  He was what is commonly called a partisan, living and fighting against the Nazis in the forests of Eastern Europe.

Abraham sends his servant to find a wife for Isaac. The servant meets Rebecca at a well, where she provides water for him and his camels. Abraham marries Keturah and has six more sons. He then dies at the age of 175.
