Today, as we dwell in this reflective month of Elul and prepare for the high holidays ahead, we also recall this day in our nation’s history. May the memory of all those we lost be a blessing.
From North to South, East to West, and throughout the world, may peace and kindness prevail over terror and violence.
Where were you when the planes hit the towers?
It’s a question people are asking and answering all day today, across social media, in offices, in classrooms, in congregations.
We would like to add another question to the mix: What are you doing, today, to commemorate the destruction that took place on September 11, 2001, and make things better twelve years later?
If you need inspiration in answering this question or finding a concrete way to do something today, you can visit the 9/11 Day website for information about how to join many people around the world as they remember this day, and work together for a better and more peaceful world.
