Help for Haiti

The thoughts and prayers of the world are with the people of Haiti at this time following the recent disastrous earthquake. The Torah states:

“Do not stand idly by the blood of your neighbor … (Lev. 19:16)”

As Jews, we are supposed to take action when fellow human beings are in distress. Therefore, join Monique and I in supporting those who are already on the ground in Haiti.

Here are a few ways you can help make a difference (because every thought, prayer, and dollar makes a difference):

Thank you for joining us in the vital task of tikkun olam!

About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Simchat Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in West Haven, CT, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.

    This is what Torah living is all about: Acts of loving-kindness, generousity and doing the little we can to help ALL those in need. Thanks for sharing these links, G-d bless you, and Shabbat shalom!
