FROM RABBI MORRISON

Dear Congregational Family,

This coming Monday, January 27, marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It is noteworthy that during this month, we have begun reading the opening portions of Shmot-Exodus. The first institutional genocide against the Jewish people goes back to Pharaoh in Egypt, where the Jewish people were enslaved and oppressed for over 200 years. In last weeks portion, we read how a new king arose over Egypt who did not remember Joseph. In the Talmud, one says this was an actual new king. Another says this was the same king who changed his mind and legislated decrees against our people.
 
Throughout our history, we have seen it both ways. A new leader arises, or an existing leader changes his mind. Both ways, we Jews have suffered all kinds of hatred during our 4000 year history. In this week`s portion, we learn how Pharaoh hardened his heart during the first five of the ten plagues. His heart became so hard from one plague to the next that he could no longer exercise his free choice to change. Sadly, many Pharaoh types have arisen over the  ages.
 
On this coming Monday, we will remember the most heinous Pharaoh of modern Jewish history. We will be grateful that finally the Shoah ended. We will be grateful that allied nations liberated Auschwitz and other camps. We will be grateful 75 years later for the strength of the Jewish people in its own homeland and around the world. However, we will also continue to mourn over the losses of six million of our people, even as we continue to deal with acts of hatred  perpetrated against Jews around the globe.

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Howard Morrison
