Chanukah 1932, “Judea Dies.” thus saith the banner. “Judea Will Live Forever,” thus responds the light.”
Though the pain of the Holocaust was worse than anything imaginable, the swastika banner has been relegated to the shadows of history, while Menorahs were lit in millions of Jewish homes all over Israel and around the world.
This may look like a Menorah in the photograph but it’s so much more. It’s the Hope of the Jewish People. Rachel and her husband, Rabbi Akiva Posner, made it out of Germany and lit the same Menorah every year, and never with more gratitude than the sacred Chanukah of 1948, in the new State of Israel. Ten years ago her great grandson Akiva took the Menorah as an IDF soldier and lit it on his base surrounded by his fellow soldiers.
“Judea Will Live Forever”, thus responds the light.
