TAKE THIS CHALLENGE –PASS THIS ALONG
Jews slaughtered in a quiet Jerusalem neighborhood as they davened shachris and recited kaddish in a neighborhood shul.
Men wrapped in talaissim and adorned in tefillin brutally massacred in a modern day pogrom.
Twenty four children orphaned in a minute.
We have no answers.
It is not for us to question the ways and decrees of the Almighty.
But we can do something.
We can take serious note of yesterday’s events.
We can recognize that the death of five holy men as they davened in a Jerusalem shul was no mere “accident”.
We can decide not to stand idly by.
We can do more than say tehilim for a few days.
We can and must make a real change.
TAKE THIS CHALLENGE
Let each and every one of us, every shul, every minyan, every Jew, permanently add five minutes – one minute for each of the kedoshim who were murdered yesterday – to our daily davening.
Five minutes of genuine kavanah (concentration).
Five minutes every day in which we beseech the Almighty “Save us from all evil and cruel decrees.”
