Many tears have fallen around the world this week. The global community feels ever closer, and our hearts ache. The victims of terror include strangers and friends. Many of us have taken pause to reach deep within and ask ourselves, “What can I do to help?” Each of us has our ability to make an impact, and I encourage you to think this Shabbat about how you can do just that.
I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to help raise a cohort of young people who will add to the goodness, the kindness, and the holiness that the world needs so deeply. When I see students learning to use their voices to express their feelings,
I see a future with less violence. When I hear students learning to express their opinions and listen thoughtfully to multiple viewpoints, I see a more empathetic world. When I watch students participate passionately in social justice projects, I feel that the world will be in good hands.
The vision of Mirowitz is to create a vibrant, socially responsible, and inspired Jewish community led by educated, capable, energetic, joyous, compassionate, ethical, and inquisitive leaders. Our outstanding faculty takes that vision very seriously and works hard to build a better future.
We send our deepest condolences and prayers for healing to the day school communities at Striar Hebrew Academy and Maimonides School, whose alumnus, Ezra Schwartz, z”l, was killed in the terrorist attacks yesterday in Gush Etzion. Our hearts go to Ezra’s friends and family, and to all the victims of terror this past week.
Have a Shabbat Shalom,
