      Dear Friends,

      There is so much Jewish music happening in NY for Purim, a great way to tap into the spiritual dimensions of the holiday -- it's about coming together as a community (giving packages of food and charitable gifts) - we're protected by our traditions no matter who's trying to destroy us. This lesson is just as meaningful today as 2500 years ago when we faced a different dictator in Persia (now called Iran). History is a cycle -- only the names change! We pray that this time we get it right and merit soon to live in a peaceful world.
