Share Article

Holocaust Remembrance Association is hosting the March of Remembrance Global Day of Action: "Reconciliation, Not Hate" on Sunday, October 4, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. We will gather at the site of the Holocaust Garden of Hope at Kings Harbor in Kingwood, Texas, to lift our voices for Israel and Jewish Life on the Biblical Harvest Holiday of Sukkot 2020.

During the COVID-19 crisis we have witnessed a dramatic increase in racism and antisemitism worldwide, which hardly anyone would have believed possible. In many cities, tens of thousands of people are taking to the streets. The images of flying stones, burning cars, confrontation, sheer hatred and violence are a shocking sight. However, right now is the time to take a stand for reconciliation in our streets. The message of the March of Remembrance is: Reconciliation begins with me!

Go to the streets of your city on the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, Sukkot on October 4, 2020. While respecting the COVID-19 regulations of your country and city, let us send a bold message to Israel and the nations: “Reconciliation, not Hate!” – Together for Israel and Jewish life.

On Sunday, October 4, 2020, we are going to the streets of our community at King's Harbor (4501 Magnolia Cove Dr. 77345) in Kingwood, Texas, in conjunction with the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). While respecting national and local COVID-19 regulations, we are sending a bold message to Israel and the nations: we choose reconciliation, not hatred, as we take a stand together for Israel and for Jewish life.

This Feast of Tabernacles, often called Festival of Booths, is a joyous celebration of the harvest commemorating the forty years the Israelites wandered in the desert before entering the Promised Land. Increasingly, Christians are choosing to celebrate this feast, as Jesus and the apostles celebrated this very special holiday as referenced in John 7:37-39.

The featured family-friendly activities of the day include music, Israeli dancing, puppets, drama, proclamations and special speakers including Houston's Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin and Humble's Mayor Merle Aaron. We will also paint rocks to honor the memory of children who suffered during the Holocaust. This day promises to help us make a clear statement for reconciliation instead of baseless hatred. According to Habakkuk 2:11 (CJB), "the very stones will cry out." May even the stones resound with cries of " Reconciliation, Not Hate!"
