From Rabbi David
Our children are growing up in a world that is more connected than ever and yet plagued by fear and mis-understanding. A big part of our Around Our World celebration is to encourage our children, and all of us, to celebrate our differences and the rich diversity, not only in our community but in our world.
One of the things that this week's Torah portions remind us of is that we are all temporary residents in our world and none of us are "more than" or "less than" any other. Seeing every person as an equal and created in the image of the Divine is a core Jewish value and one that we seek to teach and show our children every day.
As your children sang and danced this week I couldn't help but think that if we continue to teach our children this vital lesson through Kindergarten (here at Gan Sinai) and beyond our world will be a much more joyful and peaceful place.
