    Dear Readers

    Dear Readers,A lot of my work ends up

    being done at night, when dead-lines are looming, the kids are sleeping and the house is quiet. I find it peaceful to work then and I usually get a lot accom-plished. But Monday night, as I was racing the clock, my se-renity turned to horror as I saw the devastating news of the ter-ror attack in Har Nof. I kept on searching the news sites, trying to get more information. It couldnt be true; revered in-dividuals slaughtered in cold blood in middle of davening in a quiet, residential neighbor-hood. Just a few minutes before the attack, they were wrapping their tefillin and talleism around their arms and bodies, ensconc-ing themselves from the outside world as they began to pray.

    Terrorists, especially those

    who call out in the name of G-d, crave torture. They hunger for the opportunity to afflict pain and they yearn to dismember the innocent. Its hard to view them as human when they sal-ivate at the thought of spilling Jewish blood. They come armed with knives and axes, the better to feel the life ebbing from their pure victims.

    Israel is in a tough place now. Its imperative that we stop these killingsand the only way to stop them is with a strict hand and an unbending approach. But we know that the world is not on our side. We know that the world doesnt really care about a few more Jews being slaughtered. Even our allies have shown us disrespect, most recently calling Prime Minister Netanyahu a disparaging term on the world stage. When our

    friends announce that thats how they view us, then our enemies are given more power.

    May Hashem grant the fam-ilies of Rabbi Moshe Twersky hyd, Rabbi Kalman Levine hyd, Rabbi Aryeh Kupin-sky hyd, and Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg hyd a true nechama, and may He guide us to be able to navigate this pre-carious chapter in our lives.

    Wishing you a wonderful week,Shoshana

    P.S. As you may have no-ticed, The Jewish Home has a new look! We have changed our layout but have kept the authors and columns that you have come to know and love. Think of it as a makeover for the new year!
