Gathering from the Whirlwind

A Haggadah for Yom HaShoah

In the face of great evil, we held on to our humanity and our faith,

and emerged as a people strengthened in our resolve to remain Jews.

We are the living because they chose life.

As we were all at Sinai, so we are all the children of survivors.

Gathering from the Whirlwind

A Haggadah for Yom HaShoah

A special, innovative ceremony to memorialize the Holocaust
for Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Memorial Day.

This poignant and beautiful ceremony, modeled after the Passover Seder, commemorates both the terrible atrocities that occurred and the inner strength of the victims and those who helped them.

This seder commemorates the events of the Holocaust, as the Passover Seder commemorates the Exodus. 

This seder aims to recognize that once again evil people tried to kill us, but they failed.

We are still here, and we celebrate our survival, even as we honor our lost and remember the terrible things that happened to us.
