Coming up this Shabbat at Ben David

February 17 - Message by Doug Friedman:


“Why Did God Allow Six Million Jews to Die in the Holocaust?"

Why did God permit the Nazis to brutally murder so many Jews simply because they were Jews? How could a loving God allow this to happen, especially to His chosen people? What sins had the Jewish people committed that could possibly justify such a punishment? Why didn’t God intervene? We’ll be examining some of the religious and secular Jewish community’s proposed answers to these agonizing questions as well as looking into what the Scriptures tell us.

Has the Lord been good to you? Have you experienced His grace and blessings in your life? Psalm 105:1-3 Instructs us to:
“Give thanks to the Lord! Proclaim His Name; Make known His deeds among the people. Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works. Glory in His Holy Name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who see the Lord.”
If you answered “yes” to the questions above, then we hope that you will join us as we gather to say Toda Adonai in worship and fellowship. Let us proclaim His great Name and declare His wondrous works in our lives.
