Message from the Rabbi

Dear Friends, It is said that "Hope Springs Eternal." This year it seems that Winter is Eternal -- and so our hope is for a warm and glorious spring season! Indeed Hope is the hallmark of our spring holiday season in the Jewish faith. Purim and Passover are celebrations of our penchant for survival and our passion for freedom, our ability to overcome oppression and respond with creativity to challenge and and adversity. Yom Ha-Shoah reminds us of the darkest impulses of the human soul -- of which anti-Semitism is one of its most virulent reflexes. And Israel Independence Day speaks to us most eloquently of our people's ability to rise from the ashes and to be reborn.

The spring holidays can also inspire us as individuals to "Turn over a new leaf." Just as our people have found the strength to grow in new directions, clear away the debris and melt the ice of winters uncounted, so too can we find the strength and motivation to sow seeds of new projects, new and renewed relationships, commitments and possibilities. What better time than spring to sign up for a course, take up a hobby, plan a trip, discover a new author or composer, visit family or friends!

Even in our own community, perhaps this year we will take the initiative to find new directions, to embark on paths that will ensure the continuity of the future and provide for our dwindling but still vital Jewish populations in Malden and environs.

I wish all of you Happy Purim and Sweet Pesach! May you and yours enjoy a season of health and happiness. May all of our gatherings and celebrations, our commemorations and communal events bring us strength and inspiration, joy and meaning in the weeks to come.

Rabbi David Kudan
