I sincerely hope we will always look for ways to reduce the terrible rifts that exist among our people. I also hope that when we learn of someone who has been wronged we will do more than just comment. Let us always try to bring some degree of comfort to those who have been mistreated.
I know it’s just a start, but I’m glad my shul is trying to do its part.
