URGENT MESSAGE TO THE SOUTH FLORIDA JEWISH COMMUNITY
FROM: RABBI AVRAHAM KORF
Shalom U’vracha – Greetings and Blessings:
In light of the recent tragedy, namely the collapse of a building in our immediate vicinity, it behooves us to take a moment to reflect. When something happens to one, and how much more so, to many, we as a community, the “Tzibbur”, have the strength to bring about change.
We must come together and renew our commitment to Torah, Mitzvos, and Ahavas Yisroel.
While no one person amongst us is qualified to attempt at a reason for this tragedy, I strongly encourage everyone, men, women and children, to take a moment and think where he/she can better himself, to increase in Torah, Tefilla and Tzedaka, the three pillars that our sages tell us the world stands upon.
Let us take this opportunity to take on more mitzvos, beseeching mercy from Above.
We must collectively request from our Father in Heaven to bring about the ultimate and complete redemption, and take us out of this Galus now.
