The following letter will be distributed and read at tonight's Night of Inspiration through תהלים & תפילה. We are forwarding an email version both for those who are unable to attend and to also forward onto contacts.
With tears and hearts broken over the blood that has been spilled, the
blood of our martyred and sanctified husbands, the heads of our homes
We turn to our brothers and sisters, everyone from the House of
Israel, wherever they may be, to stay united so as to merit compassion
and mercy from on High.
We should take upon ourselves to increase love and brotherliness
between man and his fellow man, between our various communities and
among different sectors of society.
Our request is that each and every person take upon himself or herself
at the time of welcoming the Shabbat, that this next Shabbat be one in
which we express our love for one another, a day on which we refrain
from speaking divisively or criticizing others.
Doing so will be a great merit (zchut) for the souls of our husbands,
slaughtered in sanctification of G-d's blessed Name.
May G-d look down from Above, see our pain, and wipe away our tears.
May He proclaim: "Enough suffering, enough grief", and may we merit
the coming of the Redemption speedily and in our days, amen, amen.
Signed with broken hearts
