yom hashoaYom HaShoah 5775 - Reading of the Names

On Sunday April 12th, as part of our observance of Yom HaShoah, we will read aloud the names of French children who perished in the Holocaust throughout the day in the sanctuary.  Our vigil will begin at 6:00 AM and will continue in 20-minute shifts until 6:00 PM that day. Everyone in the Ohav Shalom family is invited to come and read for a few minutes, so that, if only for a moment, some of those who perished are in our thoughts as individuals. We speak and hear their names, and we recall them as full human beings, not just as “victims.”  Please sign up today. For additional information, or to have the office sign you up for a particular time slot, please call Nancy in the synagogue office at 489-4706 x. 10 or email Nancy.

Born in Vienna, Ilse Loeb was sent at the age of 13 to Holland for what her parents thought would be a safe haven after the Nazis annexed Austria.  When she parted with her parents at the Vienna railroad station in 1938, she did not know that this would be their last goodbye. In Amsterdam, a Jewish family adopted Ilse.  The Nazis invaded Holland in May 1940, and in June 1942, she received a letter from the German authorities ordering her to report to the Amsterdam train station for shipment to a “Labor Camp.”  Ilse managed to defy this order and go into hiding.  Her initial hiding place was just a few blocks from that of Anne Frank and her family.  Margo Frank, Anne’s sister, had received the identical deportation letter on the same day, which prompted the Frank family to go into hiding. With the assistance of family members and ...
