We Need to Remember and Never Especially Now.

Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach: History

A PLEA TO THE CITY On November 27, 1984, approximately 500 people packed a meeting of the Miami Beach Planning Board. Dozens of Holocaust survivors from across South Florida were bused in for the meeting, many making emotional pleas to the Board and hoping to sway votes. “I lost five sisters and five brothers,” 79-year-old Clara Linder said in Yiddish through a translator, The Miami Herald reported. “They were all killed.” Machela Oksenhenbler, 80, pulled up her sleeve to show a grainy tattoo on her forearm bearing the numbers 54092, put there by the Nazis.

Of particular significance to the Chabad movement, one of the largest Hasidic communities in the world, on Gimmel Tammuz 5754 (1994), the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersoh 1:50 am at Beth Israel hospital in Manhattan and was buried that day at the Ohel in Old Montefiore Cemetery in Queens, adjacent to the grave of his father-in-law and predecessor, the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn.

This year Gimmel Tammuz the third of Tammuz will begin on Monday June 30, which is the second day of Tammuz and continue through the third day of Tammuz which is Gimmel Tammuz on July 1, 2014.

 Right before Gimmel Tammuz, Queens College will host a day-long inspirational event with known figures such as Rabbi Adin Even-Israel and Rabbi Yoel Kahn. As thousands prepare to visit the Rebbe's Ohel to mark 20 years since Gimmel Tammuz, amongst them hundreds of shluchim coming with their communities, a special day-long inspirational and educational event marking the date will take place on Sunday, June 29 at Queens College.
