What challenges me each year during this time is the question I am asked more than any other. “Where was God during the Holocaust? Why did not God not stop it?”
I do not have a set pre-formulated answer to these questions. They haunt me every day. Anyone who claims to know the answer lacks the humility demanded of any person of faith.
What I can offer, however, are premises I affirm. They shape the way I think about this question. They can guide each of us in our own struggle.
The better question is where were we?»
