Careful Speech
Shlomo Nechama, of Blessed Memory

Our Fallen Martyrs


Today is Yom Hazikaron, Israel's Memorial Day. We honor the soldiers who gave their lives defending our country and our People, and the martyrs who died sanctifying Hashem's Name in the numerous terror attacks. Even though this is a politically-based holiday, this is not a politically-based post. 

Whatever you feel about Israel's government, there's nothing wrong with taking a moment to thank Hashem for the soldiers who were brave enough to put their lives on the line so we can go on with our daily nonsense. Let's think about the families of these soldiers and victims of terror and ponder what they're going through for just a moment.

May Hashem comfort them among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
