D-Day 70th Anniversary

“Today we commemorate 70 years since the D-Day landing. Words cannot adequately express our indebtedness to the bravery and courage of the Allied forces who participated in the invasion. Many laid down their lives so that we can live today in freedom. As those able to provide living testimony become fewer our challenge is to preserve their memory. Let us continually work towards guarding it, and let us ensure that Europe will always be a model of peace, tolerance and coexistence.”

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis
