MmmmLet’s get it on…

Kristallnacht, the two days of attacks against Jews in Germany that began 66 years ago today is considered the start of the Holocaust. By the time the Night of Broken Glass had ended, dozens of Jews had been murdered, 30,000 had been sent to concentration camps and 200 synagogues and 7,500 Jewish-owned businesses had been destroyed. Jews everywhere will commemorate this event today with sombre memorial ceremonies. Jewlicious would like to suggest that you mark this occasion by getting it on with a fellow Jew – you know, sort of like a big F You to those who sought to destroy us then and to those who to this day, continue to wish us ill.

Not that you should skip out on the memorials or anything, but I think our idea is a tad more compelling than yet another bleak speech by various designated community leaders. So, on Kristallnacht, light5 some scented candles, slip some Barry White into the CD player, dim the lights and get your groove on. They lost, we won – let’s rub it in.
