9/11 is Remembrance Day


As we remember 10 years ago our greatest national tragedy, it is important to rededicate ourselves to our initial response – coming together to eradicate evil. I remember how we went to Churches, Temples and Mosques to pray for those who died, those who were rescuers and those who survived. We prayed for a nation to come together and have a new response. A response of unity, love and tolerance.

Today, 10 years later, we have lost this unity. We have lost the tolerance and love for our differences. WE MUST recover these! Thursday was National Recovery Day, today is 9/11 Remembrance Day – let’s put them together and remember and recover our spiritual heritage of love, tolerance, unity, hope and faith! God Bless America and God Bless the memory of those who died and God Bless each of us with the Spirit of Holiness and Love.

  1. I met a woman at Beit T’Shuvah. We got married in August & we honeymooned in Maui. September 10, we learned she was pregnant. September 11, I awoke to a text message from our mutual friend Bianca S. telling me to turn on the news. Our son was born just under nine months later. It was like this: WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF GROWNUPS, KIDS.

    Dear Rabbi,

    I heard on the radio the other day, the following…

    “If the Muslim countries that surround Israel and do not recognize It’s existence to exist as the Jewish homeland, laid down their weapons tomorrow, there would be peace in the middle east by that evening.

    If Israel laid down it’s weapons tomorrow for peace, Israel would cease to exist by nightfall that very day.

    When it comes to “tolerance”, the Muslim worlds’ actions do not live up to its rhetoric!
