Dear Members & Friends,
We are all stunned by the horrendous, terrorist attack against the United States. Some of us may have lost relatives and friends. All of us have lost the sense of security and freedom of movement that existed prior to the attack.
Along with decent people the world over, we mourn for the innocent people killed in this attack. We want to offer prayers for the recovery of the injured and wounded. We wish to pray for the well being of the United States.
Therefore, I urge you to attend services on Friday night at 6:30 PM. In addition to the usual Kabbalat Shabbat worship, we shall add thoughts and prayers relevant to the unfolding events in the United States.
Please join us.
Sincerely, Elliott M. Marmon, rabbi

The Tokyo Holocaust Education Resource Center
This center is funded by member donations only. A woman named Fumiko Ishioka started it. She has a suitcase from 13 year old Hana Brady, who died in a concentration camp, which she takes with her as part of the presentation when she visits Japanese schools. Read more about it:
Yes, there is also a paragraph on Japan's inability to face its own past behavior in war.
