November 9/10 1938
Do you remember the Night of Broken Glass, Kristallnacht?
On that endless night of evil, broken glass and broken Jewish
souls, scattered across the dark streets of Germany and Austria,
shattered or strengthened our faith, proved or disproved the
existence of Hashem, our loving G-d.
The interpretations of evil and heinous crimes against humanity
destroy or recreate us. Shall we submit to sin or struggle to
repair our shattered faith, our shattered universe?
We must bear witness to the darkness of our past, and smother
evil with each act of kindness, each miraculous moment of
Tikkun olam! We shall repair the world one mitzvah-one
divine commandment at a time.
Thank You, Hashem, for allowing us to assist You in the
healing of our broken universe, our broken people.
Thank You, Hashem.
