With the shock of this most recent tragedy at Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fl, our hearts go out to all of the victims and their families after this senseless act. We will continue to keep them in our thoughts. We should acknowledge the absolute heroism of many of these victims from the teachers shielding students, to the student refusing to run through the door, but rather holding it open allowing his peers to run through it to safety. Finally, we salute Sheriff Scott Israel, a member of South Florida Shomrim, and all of the members of his Department for their response.
As we look ahead in the coming months we have the simcha of our Annual Installation Dinner Dance on March 22 and our Passover Distribution on March 25. The distribution is our main act of tzedakeh annually as we help families observe Pesach and enrich ours, as well. Finally, as always, I hope to see you at one of these events or at a membership meeting soon. Let’s watch out for one another out there and everybody stay safe.
