9th November – Kristallnacht 80th Anniversary
This year marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, or ‘Night of the Broken Glass’. On November 9-10, 1938, the Nazis destroyed hundreds of shuls and thousands of Jewish businesses.
Many shuls are leaving a light on overnight on Shabbat, November 9-10, 2018 to commemorate the tragedy. You may like to do so at home, too.
