Adding An Extra Prayer

As details of the horrific aftermath of Tuesday's earthquake filter out of Port-au-Prince, I am reminded how very, very lucky I am to be safe in my own home with my children around me. I always pray after lighting Shabbat candles, but this time, I will add a special prayer for those poor people who are still trapped in the rubble and are probably wondering "meayin yavo ezri" (from where will my salvation come?).

The girl was freed from the rubble shortly after this video aired and was transferred to a hospital for treatment.
Further update: CNN is reporting that the girl subsequently died of her wounds on Friday.

"meayin yavo ezri" - nicely said.

Shabbat Shalom, Raizy. I am so thankful for my family and friends.

Shabbat Shalom.

I wanted to let you know, I'm in the process of "reloading" all my old blog posts onto my new blog. (I archived everything including the comments when I shut the old blog down). Hopefully they'll all be back up soon.
