Monday, April 8 is Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time when Israel honors the memory of 6 million Jews by learning about their heroism in the face of inhumanity, and explores the roots of anti-Semitism.

"Holocaust" ("Ha Shoah" in Hebrew) actually means "a burnt offering consumed in whole by flame," and although others suffered the same fate by the Nazis (e.g., gypsies, homosexuals, Sabbath keepers of various faiths/denominations, and those with mental/physical disabilities) the word "Holocaust" specifically refers only to Jews.

The question has been asked, "If the ovens were for a special burnt sacrifice, what was the reason?" It has been explained that the guilt of so many countries that "looked away" from the Jewish persecution was so great that Israel was recognized and given her own place and identity as a nation by the U.N. in 1948. The United States was the first country to recognize Israel and support her as a nation.

Sad to say, the roots of anti-Semitism are still alive and continue to grow hate. Those of us who follow Yeshua/Jesus have a special unction to follow the command to "pray for the Shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper" (CJB Psalms 122:6).

    I was in Germany and Dachau in 1972 I put my hand inside one of the ovens... My life is never been the same. Only the birth of my children had a bigger effect on my life.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
