Shalosh Seudos:
Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

All of our thoughts turned to Israel these past few days as rockets rained down upon the country. We prayed for the well-being of Israel's citizens and soldiers.

As I write these words, the situation is still developing, and we pray for a positive outcome. I cannot help but think back to the words of the Netziv (18th century Lithuania) on this week's Parsha which I quoted on Rosh HaShana:

After the Akeida (Binding of Yitzchak), Avraham is promised that his children will be like the "starts of the sky." The Netziv explains that this is not merely a blessing of quantity -- that they will be numerous -- but of quality. After the Akeida, Avraham's descendants are blessed with the ability to "shine" and persevere in the face of attack. We are willing to stand up for our values at any price. Ultimately, as Avraham is promised, that sense of resilience gives us the confidence that we will "conquer the gates of our enemies."

May both we -- and our enemies -- rapidly realize that we are like the stars, and may we continue to shine even in difficult times.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
