Message from Rabbi Andrea

"Let Freedom Ring" by State Senator Stan Rosenberg
Presented to the Congregation of Temple Israel

"There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet."

U.S. Admiral William Halsey purportedly said that, and I suspect he was being modest in his praise of the generation that defeated fascism less than a lifetime ago.But there was, of course, nothing modest about that achievement. Bending the arc of history and setting it on a more righteous course is no mean feat.
