Today the world officially honors the memory of the 6 million Jews that were killed in the Shoah.  But a day does not pass that we do not think about their suffering and pain, and the dreams and hopes that evaporated in the ashes of the death camps. From those dark, dark days, the Jewish people, with our unending resilience, proved we can survive and once again flourish. The Jewish community still faces threats 70 years after the liberation of the concentrations camps. Anti-semitism is at an all-time high in Europe. The BDS movement is sweeping across college campuses. A nuclear Iran poses constant dangers to Israel and the region.  We must never forget; and we must never take our future for granted.
