I received an email today from the American Jewish Committee announcing the launch of their YouTube network about a month ago. Ok, so everyone has their own YouTube channel already - that’s not ground-breaking news.

Produced by NBC with the cooperation of the AJC, this video is about a historical Jewish service held on German soil on October 26, 1944 led by Rabbi Sidney Lefkowitz, an army chaplain. The touching religious ceremony was broadcast on the radio for the world to hear, declaring that Hitler and the Nazi regime did not succeed in their goal of wiping out the Jewish spirit. Here is that video:
