Shabbat Shalom - Responding to the Meron Tragedy & Schedule


We wish you a Shabbat Shalom.  Yet, we are faced with sadness in the midst of joy and darkness amidst light with the terrible tragedy in Meron, Israel on Lag Ba'Omer -last night. Click here for more information

Please click here for a very moving article expressing the feelings of the Jewish people at this moment: 

Let us respond in the three ways that Jews have for all our existence:

1. Tzedakah - Charity; A good idea would be to donate to an organization that was there at the disaster scene helping and sometimes saving such as Magen David Adom  click here to donate.
2.   Tefilah - Prayer - for the bereaved families and for recovery of the injured : The Orthodox Union has suggested reciting Tehillim / Psalms 20,121, and 130 found by clicking here and then choosing those Mizmorim / Psalms from the menu.

3. Torah Study - Study Chapter 4 of Pirkei Avot / Ethics of the Fathers click here - or any piece of  Torah.
