From Rabbi David
This Shabbat is called Shabbat Zachor - the Shabbat of remembering. We are commanded to remember the horrible things that Amalek did to the Israelites as they were leaving Egypt.
Unfortunately, in our world today, there are many horrible things that we will, I'm sure, remember for years to come - the pandemic, the atrocities happening to the Ukranian people, supply shortages, gas prices and on and on.
I chose, on this Shabbat, to remember some of the bad - we should never forget the pains in our lives - but also to remember and focus on the good: The gift that it is to live in the United States; a cool breeze on a warm Florida afternoon; the blessing of health and comfort; the smiles that greet me each morning at carpool.
It's easy to remember the pain but more challenging to remember the positive. What do you want to remember from today? I hope it fills you with joy.
