Drash v'DaSh: A Shabbat Message and Greeting
Among the various dramas of heroism associated with “9/11”, there is one
story – or series of stories – that is decidedly undertold: the role of the
On the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11,
America’s tugboat, towboat and barge industry pauses to remember
the nearly 3,000 Americans who lost their lives, and also to
acknowledge the inspiring bravery shown by first responders and
everyday citizens on that tragic day. One of the most notable acts of
valor was the maritime evacuation of Lower Manhattan – the largest
water evacuation in American history – in which 500,000 people were
transported to safety by hundreds of vessels which answered a call
from the U.S. Coast Guard to converge on New York Harbor to aid in
the evacuation. This extraordinary rescue was memorialized in the
2011 short documentary film “Boatlift”.
I will leave it to our readers to watch the video, but the message is clear.
The mission and mandate to save lives not the exclusive domain of rescue
workers; the responsibility falls squarely on the shoulders on anyone who
can contribute in any capacity. While Noah was unable to save his
generation with his boat, it is incumbent upon us to save our generation –
with our literal boats or our figurative ones - and all that will follow. “He
who saves one life, it is as if he has saved an entire world.”
While perhaps thought to be the assignment of so-called “outreach
professionals”, it is the ordinary Jew who can play the extraordinary role of
bringing others closer to Judaism. “The Shabbos Project” and its bold
ambition to maximize Shabbat-observance by Jews around the world,
even if only for one week until next year, is just one remarkable aspect of
this agenda. It is the ongoing modeling of religious ideas and ideals in a
way that is enabling and ennobling that will keep the momentum moving.
Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov,

The Park Page Puzzle
“Raiders of the Ark II”
This week’s Puzzle: Following his death, where else in Tanakh does
Noach resurface?
Solution to last week’s Puzzle: Noach (Gen. 9:2), Eliezer (Gen.
24:27), and Yitro (Ex. 18:12) each said "Barukh Hashem", while Lavan
(Gen. 24:31), Avimelech and Pichol (Gen. 26:29) said Berukh
Hashem. Yasher koach to Sid Fine, Susan Isler, Karen Klein, and Kal
Talansky for their solutions.
