Yom HaShoah

                   Where was G-d at Auschwitz?


People sometimes ask me: where was God at Auschwitz? I don’t know, but Jewishly it’s the wrong question. The real question is: Where was humanity at Auschwitz? 


Faith after the Holocaust


Faith after Auschwitz is the courage to live and bring new life into the world, never forgetting those who died but never yielding to despair. It means fighting for a world in which we recognise that those who aren’t in our image are still in God’s image. It means remembering, for the sake of life and humanity and hope.
