The book of Leviticus includes not only today’s verse, but the pivotal maxim: “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Lev. 19:18). Over the centuries Judaism has made great contributions to the world, but according to Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion, it is the three words, ואהבת לרעך כמוך (‘Love your neighbor as yourself’) that are the key to Jewish law and best express Judaism’s major contribution to civilization. Live the words of the Bible by joining with Meir Panim to care for the needy throughout Israel. Meir Panim’s restaurant-style soup kitchens give dignified assistance to Israel’s most impoverished citizens, including many Holocaust survivors, widows and orphans.

The news from Israel that I receive from you helps me know what to pray for my friends there. Got to go in September with Mike Evens and to be part of the museum dedication. I left my heart with the people and send love to you Rabbi for your work and sending us the news from there. GOD BLESS!!! Barbara Madam
