From Rabbi Kelly Levy

“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness. Not only are we responsible for the memories of the dead, we are responsible for what we do with those memories.” Elie Wiesel once stated these words, referencing the millions who perished in the Holocaust. This week we remember all of those who died in the Holocaust on Yom HaShoa, which was commemorated this past Monday.
Elie Wiesel, a survivor, writer, and incredible human being died this past year at the age of 87. His words remind us of the importance of memory and the value in sharing those memories with the world. As well, all of Wiesel’s written works and speeches urge us to care for other people, to be conscious of the world we live in, to be partners in the work of Tikkun Olam, of repairing the world.
This coming Sunday, Rabbi Stein and I will join with members of TBK and hundreds of other Jews from across the country at the Religious Action Center’s Consultation on Conscious. This important conference brings Reform Jews together to focus on social justice leadership and working with our communities and government to create a more equal and fair space for all. Essentially, we will learn about advocating for progressive social change, how to continue the work of Tikkun Olam, and how to embody Elie Wiesel’s important messages.
Yom HaShoa keeps the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust alive, but it also reminds us that we still have work to do. Our world is an imperfect place and we have a responsibility to care for every living being in it. Elie Wiesel gave us guidance on how to care for others; now the rest is up to us. For those of us attending the Consultation on Conscious, we hope to bring back more ways of continuing this important and holy work. May we all continue Elie Wiesel’s legacy of commitment and concern for our fellow human beings and for the entire world.
Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Levy
