A Midrash, A Liturgy

By Allan Kensky

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, April 14, 1995

The author writes a religious imperative coupled with a midrash to commemorate the Holocaust, which ultimately sounds similar to Passover liturgy. As Jews envision themselves as if they personally left Egypt, so too they must now envision themselves as if they personally left Auschwitz.
