Executive Editor Phil Jacobs has outdone himself. What a truly beautiful and inspiring message for your issue heading into Yom Kippur (“Celebrating a Woman of Valor,” Sept. 21), the Day of Atonement and most holy of the year. Let us be forgiven for the ways in which we have been unkind to one another. Let us all try to be better people than we were in the previous year.
Shoshana S. Cardin is indeed a precious jewel in our midst, one who understands the true nature and beauty of the Jewish people. Our strength lies in our diversity, and differences should be embraced. From that simple premise, a pluralist Jewish high school was born. Students of Shoshana S. Cardin School not only “talk the talk,” but also “walk the walk” each and every day by learning together, eating together, celebrating together, and yes, even praying together. Trust me, it is a spectacular sight to behold.
“How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, Thy dwellings, O Israel!”
