Today marks the annual anniversary of Holocaust Remembrance Day across the globe.
The, holiday, known in Hebrew as Yom Hashoah, was established through legislation in the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) to fall on the 27th of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar. The purpose of the day is to remember those 6,000,000 Jews who perished in the Holocaust.
We also remember a vow of "never again". On this day, let us remember tragedies past and work to prevent such acts in the future. On this day, it is especially important to remember America’s commitment to the State of Israel. Even today, the Jewish people and their young nation are under constant threats from those who would seek to recreate the tragedies of the past. Let us all work together to maintain the critical bipartisan alliance at home and consensus abroad to ensure that Israel’s security and her people’s prosperity is guarded without fail.
