And I'm off!
A week at Elat Chayyim

Darfur news

The Holocaust museum suspended normal operations to call attention to Darfur. This is an amazing story, and it gladdens me (as much as anything relating to the tragedy in Sudan can be gladdening). If remembering the Shoah is an imperative with any meaning, it must impel us to act against other genocides. Bravo for the folks at the Holocaust Museum who recognized the parallel, and who made the decision to make a statement about it. Now if only that could lead to action and aid...

On an unrelated note, I'll be blogging about my Elat Chayyim retreat soon, hopefully tomorrow, as soon as I edit my notes into readable form! Thanks to all who wished me a good trip, and who have asked how it went. More soon.
