Excerpts from: Prelude to A Service for the Evening of Yom Hashoah

By Michael Strassfeld

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, April 14, 1995

The most appropriate memorial on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) is a fast from speaking, during the seder avodah. On Yom Kippur God judges Jews, and the service describes bringing a sacrifice to yield forgiveness. On Yom Hashoah Jews were the sacrifice, and the silence is a time to reflect and to judge God.
