Erev Shabbat Message from Rabbi Feldman


Posted by The Jewish Center on 06/21/2019

Dear Friends,                                                                                                 
 
My mind has been on kids this week. It is the end of the school year and the beginning of the camp season so it is a season that gets us to think about children and what is best for them. In that light, I want to share something I found recently in the New York Times. I do so in the hope that you will read it and share with someone you know - either someone who is a kid or someone who has kids in their lives. There is a great deal of wisdom in this short piece.
 
Shabbat Shalom,
 
Rabbi Adam Feldman
