The Acceptance

WE ACCEPT the obligation of this legacy.

WE ARE the generations born after the darkness.  Through our parents and grandparents memories, words and silence, we are linked to that annihilated Jewish existence whose echoes permeate our consciousness.

WE DEDICATE this pledge to you, our parents and grandparents who suffered and survived:

to our grandparents, who perished  in the flames:

to our vanished brothers and sisters, more than one million
Jewish children, so brutally murdered.

to all Six Million whose unyielding spiritual and physical
resistance, even in the camps and ghettos, exemplifies our
people’s commitment to life.

WE PLEDGE to remember!

WE SHALL TEACH our children to preserve forever that uprooted Jewish spirit which could not be destroyed.

WE SHALL TELL the world of the depths to which humanity can sink, and the heights which we attained, even in hell itself.

WE SHALL FIGHT anti-Semitism and all forms of racial hatred by our dedication to freedom throughout the world.

WE AFFIRM our commitment to the State of Israel and to the furtherance of Jewish life in our homeland.

WE PLEDGE ourselves to the oneness of the Jewish people.
