On October 27th, 2018, the tragic mass shooting at Tree of Life *Or L’Simcha Congregation occurred, and 11 precious lives were lost during Shabbat morning services. The perpetrator was in part motivated by the congregation’s philanthropic work to benefit the Hebrew International Aid Society (HIAS), an American-Jewish organization established in 1881 to assist Jewish refugees. HIAS has since expanded its outreach to non-Jewish refugees fleeing conflicts in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Ethiopia, Haiti, Hungary, Iran, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Tunisia, Vietnam, and the successor states to the former Soviet Union. The organization’s goal is to help refugees escape persecution and to resettle in safety.

Lots of love, and hope to share this night with you.

8PM TUESDAY The Moth returns, hosted as always by Manchild author Alan Olifson.

INTENTIONS: Prepare a five-minute story about best-laid plans. To do lists, apologies, New Years resolutions. Making something happen through sheer will. What I meant was….
