Last evening, I was delighted to attend the Greater Hartford Legislative Forum, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford.
All candidates were invited to this special event at the Jewish Community Center in West Hartford.
I enjoyed listening to some wonderful speakers and meeting with Jewish leaders and other candidates from Greater Hartford.
A great opportunity to learn about the legislative priorities of the Jewish community.
What a meaningful way to observe the 11th anniversary of 9/11 – by building bridges and creating a better understanding of each other.
I was particularly moved by the Hebrew phrase that I learned: Tikkun olam
It means "repairing the world" (or "healing and restoring the world") which suggests humanity's shared responsibility.
A beautiful phrase to illuminate the darkness of September 11th
Thank you to Jewish Federation for including me in this forum.
