¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

The rise in anti-Semitic attacks against Jews in our country is not only alarming but its ferocity has taken a dangerous turn. We have been blessed for so many years to consider the United States a safe haven from the brutal public/private pogroms of Germany, Spain, Ukraine, and all the others. Today however we are witnessing increased anti-Semitic rhetoric from members of the United States Congress. Their unabashed criticisms of Jews trying to defend themselves from terrorists have emboldened the Jew haters hiding behind anti-Zionism.

This week’s Parsha Behalotcha is divided in two. The second half takes a distinct and tragic turn for the worse. Now the Bnei Yisroel are faced with the rebellion of the water, the spies and Korach. Their fate has been turned over in less than a moments notice. Only the passage of the Holy Ark being transported divides the two opposite poles of Jewish existence.

We remain steadfast in our resolve to combat antisemitism wherever and whenever necessary. We applaud the efforts of our fellow Jews in Israel defending not only their own citizens but Jews throughout the world. We pray for peace and geula in our time.
Am Yisroel Chai.

Good Shabbos
Rabbi A. M. Abramson

To all those who are not well as well as those worldwide with this virus. We mention their names at each Torah reading and think about them in our private tefillos. Let Hashem hear our tefillos on their behalves, and all have a speedy recovery. If there is a choleh that needs a misheberach, please email their name to anshemotele@sbcglobal.net .
Since we are not currently making the Mishebarach at Torah readings, in your private shmone esrai, you can include in the “Refaeinu” paragraph a special tefilla for the cholim that you have in mind.
