The Holocaust, or the Shoah (as it is known in Hebrew), is perhaps the most significant event of modern Jewish history, and one of the most central events of all time. Besides the destruction of the first two Temples, the Holocaust may have been the most devastating event in the annals of Jewish history, changing the condition of the Jewish People in every respect. This Morasha class is devoted to providing insight into the history of the Holocaust. The unspeakable horrors of those years molded the face of modern Jewry, and its history is crucial to understanding the issues that continue to confront the Jewish People.
