Day 12 Counting of the Omer 2013 Hod she b’Gevurah

Splendor within Discernment

Holocaust Remembrance Day

As we remember the splendor that has been lost along with those millions of lives, the knowledge and memories gone with those who perished, we commit ourselves to fighting injustice and prejudice.  Prejudice is built on overgeneralization, the opposite of true discerning.  One way to describe Hod is as splendid diversity — certainly it was a splendid diversity of children, women and men who died in the Holocaust.  As we remember them today, we are grateful for their lives, their legacies and their leadership.
