As I said the other day to a co-worker of mine who is Jewish, I am truly sorry and feel your pain. What I fail to understand is how anyone can lend so much credence to a disenchanted and discernibly immature runaway wife who had hardly begun to understand what life is all about before turning her back on and bolting from the very people who stepped in to care for her when she was down and out.
Please allow me to wish all of your readers a Happy Purim. I have fond memories of sharing homemade hamantashen with a “chussid” I used to work with.
Sal your Shabbos Goy
Thank you for your moving message. You are truly a mensch for taking the time and trouble to express your thoughts and heartfelt support.
I join you in wishing my fellow Jews a joyous and enlightening Purim. In merit of our compassionate and charitable ways, may Hashem, the ultimate Healer, fix all broken souls, abolish animosity and prejudice from among all people and deliver us from our enemy’s evil designs, as He did in the days of Mordechai and Esther.
