Our Two Days of National Remembrance
by: Schvach Yid
Rosh Hashanah is one thing; Yom HaZicharon and Yom HaAzma'ut are another. As a nation, we Jews come together on the latter two days. The dead are gone; we remember their heroic sacrifices and continue in their place. Faulty politics aside, the Jewish State of Israel is just that – THE Jewish State. Those ‘others’ who love Mecca, and still others who love their respective countries, should have no difficulty understanding Jewish national identity and should resolve to develop the ability to accept it.
