“Light Up the Church”: Remembering KristallnachtNovember 3rd, 2022Community Updates
On November 9, 1938, hordes of German paramilitary and citizens attacked Jewish citizens, their homes, schools, businesses, cemeteries and synagogues in what became known as Kristallnacht — the Night of Broken Glass.
Over the last decade synagogues around the world have participated in leaving their lights on all night on Nov. 9th. This year churches worldwide are joining them to “let their lights shine in the darkness” Wednesday, Nov. 9th in solidarity with the Jewish people, to stand against anti-semitism. At Hope Chapel, we will place about 50 “LED candles” in each of our windows visible from the streets, and yard signs out front indicating the purpose.
