Man's Decisions Will Determine the World's Future
March 20, 2020
As Shabbat approaches, I know you and your loved ones are probably feeling anxious and concerned about what the future holds. This week there is a special Biblical reading, “Hachodesh haze lechem”, the calendar is in your hands”. Here on earth it is man’s decisions that will determine the world’s future.
So, as we all face the enormous challenges unleashed by the coronavirus (COVID-19), please know that we stand in solidarity with you and your families. We urge everyone to follow the advice of medical professionals, the CDC, and our federal, state and local government officials.
As our dedicated staff continues its critical work fighting anti-Semitism and in defense of the Jewish people, all of us at the Simon Wiesenthal Center have the deep conviction that, together, we will emerge from this crisis.
Wishing you and your family Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Marvin Hier
Founder & Dean
