We Are One

Shabbat Shalom with love and light!

In Houston it is amazing to see so many people being there for each other in such incredible ways. No one is waiting for agencies and organizations to step in: citizens who are able are stepping forward to volunteer time and energy. The people in Texas who are less affected by the hurricane disaster, are holding out their hands and opening their hearts without examining the race, creed, color, or religion of those who need help.

During the devastation, we saw hurricanes of goodness and kindness being created. Stories and photos of strangers helping strangers were shared on social media. These acts create powerful winds. Hurricane Harvey affected 13 million people. The hurricane of kindness that we create could potentially reach all 7 billion humans on planet earth.

I have two close friends, Rabbi Yossi Zaklikofsky and Rabbi Chaim Lazaroff and I have been in touch with them every day. They are working wonders and just like Abraham and Sarah are opening their doors, cooking meals and working nonstop just to bring relief.

Let us hope that from this unfortunate experience, we see a return to the unconditional love and brotherhood on which this country can flourish. Let’s take this inspiration and translate it into action. Together we can create a large-scale hurricane, a hurricane of love and kindness, one that will demolish all pain and suffering – once and for all!

Our hearts and thoughts go out to all those impacted by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Shabbat Shalom and Happy Labor Day Weekend to all.

Rabbi Fishel & Ettie Zaklos
