A Few Words from Rabbi Craig Marantz

November 5, 2018

Shalom Friends:


I am very grateful that we were able to host such a beautiful and compelling memorial
to those who perished at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh. The experience of
holding a Shabbat service which filled us Jewishly but also reflected the ecumenical
nature of our community was very inspiring. That we could share our grief about
this terrible, homicidal, anti-Semitic act was comforting.


I am most appreciative to all those who participated in the service--up on the bimah,
behind the scenes, and those present in the congregation. May the memories of those
who were murdered be a blessing, and may we do whatever possible to make their
losses matter. For those who asked about it or those who did not see the prayer
booklet yet, please click HERE. In addition, be on the lookout for my d'var
Torah on Toledot in this week's edition of the Chicago Jewish News. The paper should
come out by the end of the working week; maybe slightly after.

 

Make it a day of blessing and be a force for good!
