Members of Alabama’s federal delegation commemorated Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day on Monday while also voicing their continued support for Israel in the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

Yom HaShoah, also called Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day, is an annual Jewish day of remembrance for those who lost their lives during the holocaust and the resistance against the genocide.

Support for the Jewish people has been volatile in the U.S. since Oct. 7, 2023, after Hamas launched an attack against Israel, killing and wounding hundreds while kidnapping dozens more.

Support for Israel has not waned in Congress, however, especially amongst Alabama’s congressional delegation, who have stayed vehemently pro-Israel and even escalated support since the attacks of Oct. 7 and the subsequent anti-Israel protests.
