Keep Calm and Chesed On: Parshat VaEtchanan

On Erev Tisha B'Av, Karen Hochhauser, a New Jersey NCSY Alumna who made aliyah, is thinking about the miracle of life in Eretz Yisrael, but also its challenges.

A pasuk from Parshat VaEtchanan reminds Moshe and Bnei Yisroel never to forget about doing chesed and good deeds, adding to an outpouring of love over several generations.

Ms. Hochhauser lives in Beit Shemesh and is a teacher and administrator at Tiferet.
