MOVING SPEECH

“Do I have to remind you, when they pushed us into the train stations and our relatives – how many times did you hear them calling us?,” he said. He described grandparents calling their grandchildren’s names as they were pushed into the trains. “Remember that you are Jewish. We owe it. We owe it to them and we owe it to ourselves. So please, brothers and sisters, come back home – home to old tradition and old heritage.”

“The Nazis and their assistants…they declared a war not just against Jews physically, but against Judaism, Jewish tradition,” he said. He cited Kristallnacht as a prime example. “1,400 synagogues burned and destroyed throughout Germany, to show that [the Nazis were] not just the enemy of the Jews, but also [enemies of] Judaism.”

“We will not give them victory – we will be the victors,” he concluded. “We will go back home and observe the old tradition and be what our bubbies and zaydies asked us to be.”

“This will ensure our survival, our eternity, our immortality – as they used to say, Am Yisrael Chai.”
