¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

Linked HERE is a summary ot the three weeks edited by my colleague at cRc Rabbi Yochanan Schnall

Last week as you all aware Dade County officials called off the search and rescue team at Surfside. Unfortunately, the reality of the situation led all to understand that there was no credible chance that anyone else survived the catastrophic collapse of the building on the famed street known as Collins Avenue. The fact though is that city state and federal officials made every effort to look for survivors despite the weather, danger, and vast struggle it entailed. We are proud of these first responders who determined that every effort should be made to save human life.

This Sunday we commemorate the most tragic day in the Jewish calendar Tisha B’Av. We mourn not the destruction of a building; that may be replaced. Rather we mourn the loss of human life that resulted from the two separate conquests of Jerusalem and the exile which costs millions more of human misery. As part of the kinnot we include elegies to those lost in the crusades and the Holocaust. We sit shiva as one would after losing a member of one’s own family.

This is the lesson of Tisha B’Av as we reflect on the tragedy at Surfside. The buildings collapsed; one by warfare, the other by deterioration. Yet it is for life that we mourn and for the future that we live and worship Hashem.
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.
