A Message from our Clergy – August 10, 2022

As we approach Shabbat Nachamu, the Sabbath of Comfort and Consolation, we turn our hearts towards Israel. Following the IDF arresting a senior leader of the Islamic Jihad, Islamic Jihad in Gaza fired hundreds of rockets towards Israel. The IDF responded with targeted attacks against militants and rocket installations. Hundreds were wounded, and dozens were killed.

We offer gratitude for the continued ceasefire that now allows healing, aid, and comfort to be given. From the fear and heartbreak now felt by so many in Israel and Gaza, may the days ahead move us through consolation and into resolution.
