Rav's Message
While we are saddened and outraged by any act of terror, the murder of 18-year-old Ezra Schwartz HY"D in Gush Etzion this week hits home in a very personal way.  Most of us can identify with this American student, studying at Yeshivat Ashreinu following his graduation from Maimonides in Boston.  We see in him ourselves and our own children and grandchildren; his murder brings the scourge of anti-Semitic terrorism a little bit closer to home.

On a political level, we need to impress on the American government that it needs to respond forcefully to the murder of an American citizen studying abroad.  As of this writing, the official silence is deafening and unacceptable.

On a spiritual level, we can draw some strength form this week's Parsha of Vayeitzei.  The Parsha describes how Yaakov, despite all odds, managed to grow his flock of sheep from a paltry few to a large flock.  The Torah spends quite a bit of space describing this unusual growth of Yaakov's flock.  The Torah is providing us an eternal message:  The Jewish people are like Yaakov's flock.  On the surface, it may seem unlikely that the flock will grow, but we have confidence that G-d watches over us and enables us to increase and prosper.

We yearn to see that day when the Jewish "sheep" need no longer fear the "wolves" .....
