yom hashoah v’parshat kedoshim v’pirkei avot
Yom HaShoah. Remember. Do not forget. Zachar. Remember.
This week we learn Parshat Kedoshim, found at Vayikra (Leviticus) 19:1-20:27.
There are many mitzvot (commandments) found in this parshah, including my favourite and the one that lead to Hillel’s famous golden rule, it is found at 19:34 and a translation reads “The stranger who sojourns with you shall be as a native from among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God.”
Given the long shabbos afternoons we now read through Pirkei Avot, Ethics of the Fathers, learning one chapter a week.

I hope you’ll forgive me for copying a comment I made to YarnYenta’s post on Yom HaShoah…
That someday, starting now, we will live in a world where No More and Never Again truly mean something.
In solidarity with all those of blessed memory, all those forgotten, all those here, and all those yet to be born.
Peace and blessings…
