Headed to Auschwitz

We spent Shabbos in the city of Krakow and had an opportunity to hear from the former Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Lau. He spoke about the Mitzvah of Ve'ahavta L'reyacha K'mocha and the challenges that we face when it comes to loving our neighbor as much as we love "ourselves". This is a lot easier said than done and he gave 3 different suggestions. First, this is not the beginning but the conclusion of 18 other verses that are each a step in the right direction. First stop hating them etc...
Last night we went to the Concentration Camp known as Plashow for a ceremony and Havdalah.

We are about to leave for Auschwitz...
