Remembering 9-11

Dear Friends,


Eight years ago we all ran to the television or the radio as we learned the news of the planes hitting the Twin Towers in New York.  It was a morning of shock and fear.  I know for a fact that at least one person on this list was one of the firefighters who ran in while other ran out.


Jay, thank you for your bravery and your devotion to saving lives even at the risk of losing yours.


My friends, please take a moment to remember the grief of those who lost loved ones and the bravery of so many good people who did all they could, that day and since, to help.


I have posted a beautiful reflection written by Rabbi Creditor of Netivot Shalom in the post immediately before this one.



I want to give you a few additional useful items for this coming High Holidays.
