Every day is a winding road, said Sheryl Crow and the Beatles.

 

Life changes in ways we are never quite prepared for. As a hurricane visits friends and family, making their lives more challenging, it reminds us of the hurricanes we have overcome.

 

When tragedy strikes what do we do? Do we hide or fight? Do we help or ignore? It is interesting that some senators and representatives who did not want to support Hurricane Sandy relief suddenly want federal help for Harvey. Should we ask our representatives to ignore them or offer our assistance? As much as revenge is a dish best served cold, I think there is only one answer. We must do the right thing. We must offer our hand to our neighbors and friends. Should they be punished for having representatives who make cruel and vicious choices?

 

In this time of hope, as we march towards Rosh Hashanah, we must try to forgive.

 

I’d love your thoughts. Please respond in the comments-as long as you aren’t selling viagra!

Shabbat Shalom

A Mikvah from the time of Solomon from our Shul trip to Jerusalem

As we enter into this Shabbat, let us take a quick moment to pause and reflect.

What has this week brought us?  Has it brought us joy? Has it brought us sorrow?  What do we hope for in the week to come?

Let us pray for a week of peace!

Shabbat shalom.
