Working together for Unity and Solidarity for Victims of War

Chaplain services were held on October 19th at the Miami VA Main Chapel. Our very own, Rabbi David Gold of L’Chaim Hospice, was a guest speaker along with Imam Bilal Karakira.

Archbishop Thomas Wenski’s recent statement on the outbreak of violence in Israel, “The situation in Israel after Saturday’s terrorist attacks on innocent citizens causes great apprehension and sorrow among all people of good will. The Catholic community of South Florida expresses its condolences to all who have suffered the loss of loved ones this week in Israel where violence has caused hundreds of deaths and injuries. We stand in solidarity with those suffering from these events. We hope for a swift and just resolution of this conflict. And we pray for a lasting peace for all”

Mishkan Miami

The Jewish custom is to visit a cemetery where our loved ones are buried before the Jewish Holidays. Yesterday, September 10th, L’Chaim Hospice, a program of catholic hospice, co-sponsored the event, with the Jewish Federation, in four locations in Miami-Dade counties. Local clergy, chaplains and cantors lead the memorial, giving words of encouragement, inspiration, and meaningful lessons for the participations. We also provided apple sauce and honey packages for all whom attended. Wishing each one a Happy and healthy Jewish New Year.
