Israel in our Hearts

 

This Shabbat Day there will be a peaceful walk around Washington Square Park and Union Square Park to raise awareness of the hostages in Israel. Shabbat is a time to pause, connect, and reflect; yet, as long as our family in Israel are suffering, we cannot rest. The walk has been organized by Dr. Michelle Sarna, will begin at 2:30 PM at the Bronfman Center, and will take approximately one hour. (Please note that the walk will be held a half hour later than it previously has been.


Please continue to you support each other. While this sort of peril and loss, as well as the emotional responses they engender, aren’t new to our national history, they are - in fact - new to most of us. Remember that we all come to the (kiddush) table with different psychological skill sets and traumas. Look out for one another, check in, and be flexible to, and understanding of, the broad spectrum that is the emotional health of others. We ask that when you speak to each other, you be mindful of potentially inflammatory language and gruesome content; particularly in the presence of children.

 

Find comfort in community as we process the daily horrors and pray for safety, peace, and consolation.
