President’s Message – May 14

The word of the week:

This week’s message has been so challenging to write. I see the conflict in Israel and feel distraught over the loss of life and continued fighting. I have received messages from friends in Tel Aviv that they are being bombed non-stop. When will this end?  Let’s dedicate our service to peace this week.  Prayers for Peace as we celebrate receiving the Torah from G-d.

Last week I sent out an email re: donations for India. A few people have asked for a link to make donations. Here is the link to donate. write!/donation/checkout?
