The news from Israel continues to worsen as more innocent lives are lost and the reign of terror continues. The situation is dire and heartbreaking. We are all connected and we feel it. We have many community members who are Israeli and/or have family members and dear friends in Israel. We are one worldwide Jewish family and our children are suffering and dying. At this painful, frightening and heartbreaking time there are still things we, as a Jewish community, can do to alleviate some of the suffering. Please, if you know someone who has family and friends in Israel, reach out to them with comfort and see how they are doing.
This week there will be two community vigils to gather together in solidarity with Israel, but also to pray and to mourn. Flyers for each event are copied below. Please join me, if you can, at the Chabad Community Candlelight Vigil tonight,10/10 at 6:00 pm in Newington.
On Wednesday evening, 10/11, Jewish Federation of NH and all local synagogues are sponsoring a vigil at 6:00 pm at the NH Statehouse in Concord.
At a future date tba, Temple Israel will host a community gathering for sharing and prayer.
