Bringing More Light Let us please remember that the Sabbath of the Convention was the fourth anniversary of a massacre in a synagogue in Har Nof, Israel. The widows asked that in their husbands' memories Jewish girls and women ask Jewish girls and women to light Shabbos candles to bring more light. Also, on another Rosh Chodesh Kislev, after the Mumbai massacre, a woman who had done so much to reach out to Jews in India was home visiting in Israel and was murdered by a terrorist. We can pray for more success for all the shluchim, recovered formerly troubled teens, whoever is reading this, for insisting on Jewish and all human life, bringing more light till the lights of Moshiach.
