I'm an Irish Girl, A Dubliner, with the 'Gift of the Gab' ... I like to talk & to tell you things. In Celtic times news, views and comment were carried from place to place by wandering Seanachaí ~ Storytellers ~ who relied on their host's hospitality and appreciation. I will need that from you too, as I venture to share Politics, Poetry, Laughter, Love, Life & everything in-between ... from Bog to Blog!!

Forget Not the Fogel Family H"YD!!!
Shabbat Zachor, the Shabbat of Remembrance, is this coming Shabbat when we read from Torah how the Amalekites attacked us out of senseless hatred. The Torah exhorts us to never forget this evil, and to “eradicate the memory of Amalek.” Since Haman was a descendant of Amalek, we do this before Purim, which is next Thursday. So today is the Yarhzeit of the Fogel Family who on another Shabbat, less than one year ago were Slaughtered ..... their 'crime' is that they were Jews.
