Few months after that I found out that my mother couldn’t find a place in my hometown and ended up leaving. I had many issues during these times and was super confused about why this was happening to me. I have to say that I doubted God and was angry on why He would let this happen to me. For a while, I wanted to give up on my faith like I’m sure many Jews wanted to when they were in the Holocaust. Eventually, when I got myself pulled together I started using what I have been through to help others. I never knew how many people in my life has been through what I have been through. It makes me happy to help others, not only am I helping others but I’m helping myself become stronger as a person and stronger in my faith. Every time I tell my story to others I try to tell people about how at first, I wanted to fall away from God but then realized that God is who held my hand through it
Many kids do not realize how life is out of the United States. I have experienced a completely new aspect of life outside of an American life into a third world country. Being able to stay there for half of the summer each year as taught me valuable characteristics. The culture experience I had in El Salvador has made me a humble individual, who has become more generous and a thankful person.
There are many events in history but Holocaust left a permanent scar on the face of history. The event soaked in blood and tears of innocent would be unforgettable. Holocaust also known as Shoah (in Hebrew) was a genocide that took lives of millions of people from different backgrounds. Approximately 1 million Gypises were killed, 1.5 million mentally and physically handicapped people were victims of T-4 program, but Jews where the primary victims and 6 million Jews died in holocaust (Neiwyk and Nicosia). The Holocaust took place between 1933-1945. In 1933, Nazis came in power in Germany and they believed that Germans are “superior” race where Jews are “inferior” and evil race. Economically Jews were strong and Hitler and Nazis did not like
Throughout human history a plethora of religions and belief systems have emanated across the translucent barrier of time. A few religions or belief systems that share instant recognition within contemporary societies include Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Taoism. Each aforementioned religion or belief system alone holds immense and intricate details beyond complete comprehension. To simplify such a complex slew of interrelated ideals, this comparison will sight the relationship between Buddhism and Judaism. Therefore a definition of Buddhism, Judaism, and their divine cosmic origins will reveal the interlinking aspects of both beliefs.
Coach Spurlin really helped influence my life. He taught me how to be mature and take things serious. Coach showed me a new perspective in life and showed me I can accomplish many things. He stepped in as a father figure for me when I needed it. I also learned from him that hard work is the root to success. Coach really made me the man I am today.
I felt my heart hammering in my chest. I knew I was next and my anxiety was trying to get the better of me but I knew better. When I heard my name called, I slowly got up from my seat. I glanced around me and caught my brother’s eye. He gave me a small smile, giving me the courage I needed to get myself to the stage. As I stood in front of the podium I looked over the crowd. Everyone’s eyes were on me. My heart started pounding in my ear, words escaping my mind. All I could do was wonder how I had ended up here. I was never really in touch with my Jewish roots. I observed many of the sacred holidays and I was Bat Mitzvah, but I did not take my heritage seriously. Sunday religious school was more a social event than educational. Being Jewish
C.S. Lewis once said, “I believe in Christ, like I believe in the sun- not because I can see it, but by it I can see everything else.” I have used this quote as a guide for myself throughout my journey to finding the Lord. Putting my faith into someone “intangible” and having faith in Christ has not been an easy task for me, given I was not raised in an extremely religious household. However, I was about fourteen when I discovered God’s word, felt my heart swell with happiness, and fell in love with Christ. That day changed my life entirely, and completely changed my outlook of the world.
Judaism was founded by Abraham, Isaac, and Moses, and it is the original Abrahamic religion. There are around 14 million followers of Judaism today, and these people are called Jews.

Throughout the Nazi regime in Europe from 1943 to 1945, many Jews opposed Hitler’s policies by engaging in acts of physical, mental and spiritual resistance. Many non-Jews also stood by the Jews in opposing Hitler’s government and his policies. These people helped many Jews escape ghettos and concentration camps. However, there were also many Jewish people who did not resist the Nazi’s and fell victim to their rule. Many non-Jews did not help the Jewish people and simply followed the regime by ignoring the atrocities that the Jews faced throughout the Nazi regime.
I am Wiley Hayes, and I serve several roles with Beyond the Bridges Ministry (BTB). My duties include serving as the program’s administrative assistant, managing the central office, and providing direct services to program participants. I have received training to mentor those who enroll in our Re-Entry Ministry, encouraging them to face the long-term challenges of returning from prison to their communities, as well as helping them solve the immediate and practical problems of housing and employment. I have seen how BTB makes a difference for ex-offenders. It helps them put their lives back together, find a place in the community, and put prison behind them. That is BTB’s mission, a ministry service provided to ex-offenders by ex-offenders.
The Jews were forced to move to the ghettos because the Nazis wanted to limit Jews freedom (Blohm Holocaust Camps 10). The Nazi convinced people that the Jews were infectious and this was one of their favorite tactics to use (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 9). They used that tactic to say that they were moving Jews into “quarantine” to protect the public from disease (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 9). Unfortunately, the Jews were only moved to ghettos for the short-term solution of extermination (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 13).
Isaiah 53 should be a very critical prophetic chapter of the Bible when it comes to establishing without ambiguity that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is indeed the Jewish Messiah long awaited for in Judaism. Popular in evangelical circles, this prophecy clearly describes some of what Jesus of Nazareth experienced while here on earth. Contrary to the systematic way the translation of the Word of God has been divided, my belief is that this prophecy began in Chapter 52:13 and continued until Chapter 53:11. Although this passage clearly talks about the suffering messiah Jesus, we know that the Jews in general rejected Him as the Messiah and are still awaiting for the messiah to come although He came 2000 years ago.
Did you know America didn’t even know about the holocaust for the first few years? Today you will hopefully learn a bit more about the American reaction to the holocaust. The main components to the American holocaust response were debates, protests, news, and the community. At first, America had no idea about what was going on in Europe, thus why the reaction was so great. Even though Some catholic Americans did agree with Hitler, thinking jews were evil, the holocaust seemed terrible for America. America had no idea about the thousands dying, and the hundreds of previous European jews now living in America, thinking about their relatives and family. Also, America hadn 't ever heard or seen of anything as bad as the holocaust, other than World War One.
The Philippines is a predominantly Catholic nation. As a result, most of the traditions in our country run parallel with Catholic and Christian beliefs. Events like fiestas and processions, sacraments including Baptism, Holy Eucharist and Matrimony, and celebrations such as Easter and Christmas are now deeply rooted in the Filipino culture. Generally speaking, Catholicism has been attached to the Filipino identity from the moment the Spaniards introduced it to us in the 16th century.
