Shabbat Shalom

We are Charlie. We are Jewish. We are one of the millions in the streets of Paris. Expressions of solidarity abound - after the tragic events. We empathize deeply, mourn, and pledge to grow from the experience. We hear the wakeup call : to continue the fight against radical Islam, to consider the need of European Jewry to make aliyah, to spread democracy the right to free speech, and to become more vigilant for the security of Jewish communities.

Yet, I wonder: how long will the impact of these events last? Will we really answer this wake-up call?

I am reminded of a message from the Torah portion of Veera. According to the Midrash, as the Jews are getting ready to leave Egypt while still enslaved, G-d instructs Moses to teach the Jews about freedom for servants- the mitzvah of shiluach avadim. Why at that exact time? The Torah has not yet been given. Why preempt Sinai with this commandment?

Rabbi Chaim Shmulewitz's insight reveals much about human nature. The Jews received the commandment precisely while they still experienced the anguish of personal slavery. Only while the Jews were enslaved could they fully appreciate the commandment to free slaves. That moment in their lives is the time to commit to an action ensuring they never forget the plight of a slave.

This is our moment. What will we do? Will we urge those nations who gathered in Paris to march to stay resolute? Will we continue focus on our role in this historic drama? Will we remember those who died for the sake of G-d?

In this spirit, our shul will host a shloshim event in memory of Yohan Cohen, Yoav Hattab, Fran├žois-Michel Saada and Phillipe Braham who were murdered in the supermarket in Paris. The event will beon Tuesday, February 10, at 7:30 PM. It is co-sponsored by our local United Jewish Federation, Stamford JCC and other communal organizations. I also encourage you to join us in Washington DC for our AIPAC delegation. Our voices must be heard. www.aipac.org.

May Hashem grant the families comfort and strength. May we and the world remain resolute in ensuring "never again."

Shabbat Shalom
