Remembering the Victims of September 11th

For most of us, September 11th has become just another day on our calendars. Though we may remember our own experiences on September 11th, 2001, the intense terror of that day has waned considerably. Memorials are smaller as we all, for reasons of all kinds, move forward with our lives.

But I hope we’ll all take a few moments today to think about those who died in those planes and towers. If you’re looking for a memorial text, or something to help you focus your thoughts, I recommend these recordings by Rabbi Irwin Kula. Rabbi Kula set the last messages of 9/11 victims to Eikha trope, and the results are incredibly effective and horrifically sad. (HT Jewschool).

Have a safe and comforting Shabbat.
