Rabbi’s Message & YIGC Announcements for 2/17/18
Today is the second day of Rosh Chodesh Adar and the first day of the month of Adar. Our Rabbi’s teach us, that the month of Adar is a time of joy. It isn’t always easy, especially when there are painful things happening around us. In particular I am referring to the tragic shooting incident that took place this week in a school in Florida. It is a painful reminder to us that we live in a dangerous and crazy world. Dangerous people have too much access to dangerous weapons.
On a more positive note we are getting closer to Purim, and we are looking forward to a freilich Purim together. I want to remind everyone to please respond as soon a possible to attend our upcoming Purim party, scheduled for Sunday night February 25. We are attaching the Purim flyer with all the details. I look forward to seeing everyone at our Purim party, and on Purim as well.
Have a great Shabbos.
