Memorial and Blessing.

On January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated Auschwitz. Auschwitz was of the Nazi Germany Concentration Camp where an estimated 1.3 million people were murdered, including Jews,  Poles, Gypsies, and many more. 
  Unfortunately, many of my relatives I will never meet died at Auschwitz or during the Holocaust.
   By some blessing, my Grandma Marisha, and other Ferber family members survived.  They survived and came to America to build a new life.  And in that new life, they not only survived but they also thrived, grew and lived.

    This evening is the start of Tu Bishvat.  It’s a Jewish Holiday in which Jews celebrate what Trees, Plants and the Earth has provided for the world. (Sort of a Jewish Arbor Day).  In Judisiam there is a song called ” Etz Chaim Hi” or “Its the Tree of Life”. 
      Earlier today people took take time to remember lives lost in the Holocaust. This evening not only can Jews celebrate trees and what they provide. Tonight I can also be thankful for my own Tree of Life/Family Tree and how it  has grown, into an incredible,  strong, caring, loving Ferber Family.

Hi, I am in my early '40s with a wife and a young daughter. I am doing this so I can share my ideas, thoughts, and creativity with the world. I also wanted to find new ways to express myself. I hope you enjoy it.
