Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

A chapter of Lower East Side history came to a tragic end this past Sunday, Lag B'Omer, with the fire which consumed much of the Beis Medrash HaGadol building. The walls of that edifice were witness to much of the glorious history of the Jewish Lower East Side. The building's destruction is truly a great loss.

And yet -- every cloud his a silver lining. The obvious "silver lining" in this case that, thank G-d, no one was hurt in the fire. Beyond that, the rapid response of the NYC Fire and Police Departments to the blaze and the subsequent crime investigation remind us how fortunate we are to live in the United States. How often, throughout our long exile, did we witness synagogues being burned by the local government authorities or with their consent! We should ponder how blessed we are to live in a country which values religious freedom and is quick to help when fires burn, literally or otherwise, in the Jewish community.

The freedoms we posses in this country are a blessing, but they also create for us a sense of obligation. When we encounter situations which can have negative consequences for our community, we are mandated to speak up.

I was proud, this past week, to see how many of our members refused to allow Linda Sarsour's appearance at the Henry Street Settlement to pass in silence. We took the opportunity to educate Henry Street and the community at large about the disturbing nature of Ms. Sarsour's views.

I sincerely believe that our efforts made an impact. Every time we speak up about views which are abhorrent, we help marginalize those views and ensure that they are not viewed as mainstream.

On a personal note, I had a wonderful and meaningful trip to Israel. I look forward to seeing you all this Shabbos.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
