FROM RABBI BERKMAN AND OUR SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE IN RESPONSE TO RECENT EVENTS:

May 31, 2020/8 Sivan 5780

Shavua tov.

As the new week begins, Jews around the world are coming out of the holy time of Shabbat and Shavuot (observed for two days in much of the Jewish world). We return to a world deeply in need of healing, both from the pandemic which has caused 365,000 deaths as well as tremendous suffering from the economic impact, and from the scourge of racial injustice.
