Reality Check

July 22, 2008

While several of the posts on this blog have been personal ponderings about Jewish life here at home in the United States, today’s despicable terrorist attack in Jerusalem is an important reminder that while we may wonder how to improve ourselves as a community, there are individuals who are dedicated to destroying us as a people. And we must be vigilant.

Just over a year ago my wife and I were walking along on King David Street, talking with friends and busy making our plans. Tonight we are praying for those who were injured in today’s mayhem… the mayhem in those very same footsteps we walked.

That is the lot of the Jewish people – to plan and to pray.

May our plans be realized and our prayers be answered.
