Dear DKJA Community,
This past week, our Jewish community
mourned the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Z”L. Justice Ginsburg leaves behind a legacy of fighting for the constitutional rights of all people, and she did so with unparalleled wit, wisdom, and a tenacious belief in equality for all. She was extremely proud of her heritage and was guided by the Jewish principle of Tikkun Olam, or “healing the world.” Today, as we are faced with continued uncertainty and daily stress intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic, I encourage our community to find a way of incorporating Tikkun Olam into their daily lives. Whether it be through an increased awareness of social distancing, reaching out to a neighbor in need of emotional support, or simply passing along a kind word to a family member or friend, we can all take a moment to do our part in healing our world.
