A Miraculous Day

Several Rabbis have been pointing to a verse in Isaiah 60:14 that seems to be describing the incredible Holocaust Memorial attended by numerous world leaders.

They humbly came to commemorate seventy five years since the liberation of Auschwitz at the end on World War Two. Kings, princes, presidents, and prime ministers each knelt at Yad Vashem, as they placed a wreath in order to remember the six million.

Many of these leaders came from countries who treated Jews badly. Some mocked and belittled the Jews, while others physically harmed them. But on Thursday it looked like an outright fulfillment of prophecy.

I will quote the appropriate verses using the Artscroll translation. It would appear that Thursday was a great day and one more sign that the Redemption is getting ever closer.

“The sons of your oppressors will go to you submissively, and all who scorned you will prostrate themselves at the soles of your feet; they will call you, City of Hashem, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Instead of your being forsaken and despised without wayfarers, I will make you into an eternal pride, a joy for generation after generation.”

We will remember January 23rd, 2020, as a great day in Jewish History.
