Do you remember the devastation ofÂ Poile Zedek cemetery at the beginning ofÂ this year? Several of us had asked to rush toÂ our neighborâ€™s help, and so we had a specialÂ collection during worship on February 24.Â At the time we wrote to Rabbi Mykoff theÂ following:
â€œHere at First Reformed Church we feelÂ that a historic congregation like yours is anÂ important anchor of the community.Â Together we provide a sense of historicÂ identity, and we help make our communityÂ particular. An assault on one of us is, Â therefore an assault against all of us.â€
I would like to share with you now theÂ thank-you letter of the synagogue, becauseÂ so many of us contributed to this cause.
Thank you again for your concerns, youÂ prayers, and your financial contribution. Â Together we build community in ourÂ neighborhood.
