Dear Members and Friends,

In times of turbulence, it is essential to find moments of positivity and resilience. While the past six months have been incredibly challenging for Israel and all the Jewish people in the Diaspora, the events of this past weekend have also caused many of our community to feel anxious, overwhelmed, sad, and uncertain. At this time, it is important to remember the strength and resilience that lies within our beautiful and strong community.

As we approach the festival of Passover, we are reminded of the enduring spirit of the Jewish people throughout history. Despite facing formidable challenges, we have always persevered, drawing on our faith, hope, and determination to overcome adversity.

The story of the exodus from Egypt serves as a powerful reminder that even in our darkest moments, there is hope for freedom and peace.

On behalf of the Hakoah board and staff, we extend our warmest wishes to you and your families for a Passover filled with joy and blessings. The 133 hostages still in captivity are always on our mind and we pray for their safety and swift return. We also pray for the safety of our IDF soldiers, wishing a refua shlema to the many thousands injured. May this holiday season be a time of reflection, renewal, and hope for a brighter future.

As we gather around the Seder table, let us also reflect on the importance of welcoming others into our community and ensuring that no one is left behind or excluded, and this year set an extra place for the hostages that are unable to attend a seder. Let us strive to create a more inclusive and compassionate world where all, including the “fifth child”, are valued and respected.

Chag Pesach Sameach!
May we celebrate many more Passovers together at the new Hakoah Club in the years to come.
