  1. Hashem Yishmor–Baruch Dayan HaEmes. Do they know yet what caused the van to veer off the road?Please, folks, be careful out there–It’s almost the three weeks and we need to be extra careful everywhere we go. Drive with seat belts, drive within the speed limit. And remember–the coronavirus (Covid-19) is still not over. Please don’t become too complacent–wear masks ( I know they’re hot and uncomfortable–but getting sick is so much worse). Wash your hands often. Keep your social distancing. May Hakadosh Baruch Hu protect us all from all Yisurim. Have a wonderful and safe summer.

  2. “I heard it was…” from whom did you hear it? “He MAY have been on the phone”. Maybe a seizure, heart attack, cramp, etc. We all are as one. Let us all do t’shuva. Look at your hands and thank Hashem they work. If they don’t find many other things to be grateful for. When we lack gratitude we lack awareness of Hashem.
