The museum’s three major sources of light are from above, and at either end of the long dark tunnel, representative of the light of G-d, the light of European Jewry that was extinguished, and the light of Jerusalem embodying our future dreams.
Broaching the topic of the Holocaust once again is difficult, but necessary. With an endless amount to learn about the dark chapter in mankind’s history, the visit to Yad Vashem was both educational and cathartic, providing a sense of closure to our journey in tribute and remembrance of the Shoah. Beginning the next chapter in which we write the story of our people, we prove that we will never be silent witnesses to the story of our people.
Exploring the museum, having a seminar on life after the Shoah and entering into what is called the room of questions where experts across a number of fields have answered a plethora of philosophical, historical and religious questions relating to the Holocaust served as a means of furthering our knowledge and furthering our depth of thought in Jewish History.
