Remembering those lost in the Holocaust #general


Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

The fast of the tenth of Teveth (next Sunday) was designated by the Chief
Rabbinate of Israel in the early days of the State as the day of general
kaddish for Holocaust victims. In practice, the custom is that people who
do not know exactly when their family members were killed say kaddish on this
day.
