Shabbat Shalom

Living in Israel everyone knows someone who served in the Israel Defense Forces. Veterans are interwoven into society. When the relationship is personal, the sense of communal responsibility is palpable. Some might consider Avraham to be the first veteran as he fought in the battles of the four and five kings. He states in the Torah the requirement to provide for his compatriots.

However, in our country, veterans represent only 1-2% of our population. As evidenced this past year, we struggle as country to provide needed benefits and care. It is not a personal issue since most Americans do not know a veteran. Yet, our obligation remains the same - to express our gratitude and offer support to the men and women who choose to serve voluntarily and defend our country.

This week, I heard Howard Schultz speak about his recent book For Love of Country: What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism, and Sacrifice.It is an inspiring book on how veterans make vital contributions once they return home, drawing on their leadership skills and commitment to service: former soldiers who aid residents in rebuilding after natural disasters; a former infantry officer who trades in a Pentagon job to teach in an inner-city neighborhood; a retired general leading efforts to improve treatments for brain-injured troops; the spouse of a severely injured soldier assisting families in similar positions.

As we commemorate Veteran's Day this Tuesday and recognize our own Veterans this Shabbat, let us remember just how indebted we are to those who protect us, what they have to offer our nation when their military service is done and express our utmost gratitude to them.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Daniel Cohen
