Day 13: Yesod sheb'Gevurah, Foundation within Strength
Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. In Israel, they sound sirens throughout the country and everyone stops to remember those we lost. The State of Israel rose out of the ashes of the Holocaust and is a symbol of the continued strength of the Jewish people.

The men and women of the IDF provided a strong foundation for Israel and continue to defend it bravely.
