Looking Back & Forward

This evening begins Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom HaShoah. We have always said that we must never forget this huge tragedy of human suffering. Why is remembering HaShoah so important, especially now?

Fireworks, food, good fortune and/or prosperity are aspects of Chinese New Year. But there is an older story behind this holiday, a story of MONSTERS and noise! What can this story teach us about community? Everyone is asked to wear RED – your lives may depend on it…
