Those between the ages of 90 and 109
A Message from our Chaplain
Today, November 9th, we remember Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass. We also mourn the loss of one of the great rabbis of our time, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, z”l:
“Empathy, sympathy, knowledge and rationality are usually enough to let us live at peace with others. But not in hard times. Serbs, Croats and Muslims lived peaceably together in Bosnia for years. So did Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda. The problem arises at times of change
and disruption when people are anxious and afraid. That is why exceptional defences are necessary, which is why the Torah speaks of memory and history – things that go to the very heart of our identity. We have to remember that we were once on the other side
of the equation. We were once strangers: the oppressed, the victims. Remembering the Jewish past forces us to undergo role reversal. In the midst of freedom we have to remind ourselves of what it feels like to be a slave.” – Rabbi Jonathan Sacks z”l
