Parsha Thought... Omein to you Richard. I just wish we as a people, could bring more light and chesed into the world without these tragic events happening. I have seen more commitment and I have also commited myself to more mitzvas, thereby honoring the memories of those lost.
Gam zu lah tova!

Response to last comment I agree with Dr. Austin's view that we are constantly challenged to serve HaShem with joy. However, HaShem's kindness should never be questioned, even in the light of the horrible events of Mumbai.

Whenever anything happens in the world we as Jews are supposed to search for the good in it. Nothing happens by accident or without HaShem's guiding and loving influence.

It may take a day, a year, a decade, or even a century or more to discover this good, or we may never discover it.

One of the good things that has come out of the tragedy is the number of new Mitzvot which people have undertaken on this website which currently is hovering around the 10,000 mark. If people follow through on these, then the passing of the Holtzberg's would not have been in vain. The events of Mumbai is another wake up call from HaShem who constantly sends reminders to his people to do more Torah learning, davening, chesed, etc., to bring about about the coming of Mashiach speedily in our days.

Finding simcha, joy in life and living... Thank you Rabbi for your dvar Torah. Although I know we are supposed to serve Hashem with joy, it is sometimes difficult to do, especially after the tragic and horrific events at the Mumbai Chabad House. I sometimes question that G-d is kind when righteous and giving people like the Holtzberg's die in vain and leave a child orphaned. How is this kind? Never-the-less, I do continue to serve G-d with joy and in the memory of the Holtzberg's, vow to do more to bring more light into the world. Thanks again for the lecture. Reply
