The Bulletin - A Community Update for April 21, 2016

Happy Passover

  

Tomorrow night we celebrate Passover.

We remember the journey from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land. It wasn’t easy; it took a while (40 years in the desert). One of our best nights of “they tried to kill us, we survived, let’s eat.”

But on this day, as I wish all of you the happiest and most meaningful time with family and friends, I ask that you think (for a minute or two) about those who have yet to experience that journey to freedom. Human trafficking is the number one growth crime globally and children make nearly a quarter of its victims.

Shabbat Shalom & Chag Sameach,
