As is evident, I didn't have a whole to to say this week... too much work, a little bit of angst... but others had a lot on their minds. Please read this short post about why, even in light of yesterday's horrible events, we can find hope at the start of this new month. (The section of the Purim story Rebbi Leibowitz references--when Mordechai mourns--is, coincidentally, from a part of the Megillah I will be chanting. So those words are in the forefront of my mind these days.)
How can we be happy this Rosh Chodesh?
