I may risk belaboring my listeners’ patience by mentioning again the earthquake that has devastated South Asia, but I must do so. Just this week the United Nations put out an urgent plea for more funding and stated that relief operations would have to be scaled back, putting millions of lives at risk if another 250 million is not raised immediately ( Even as our national media tires of covering this tragedy, it is mushrooming into a far deadlier disaster because of lack of aid, and it has already claimed tens of thousands of lives. Please do whatever you can to help to spare more victims. is a very good resource for researching aid organizations and provides a link from its home page to organizations assisting in the recovery efforts and easy ways to donate much needed funds for the recovery.

"'The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat; therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practice what they teach. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them. They do all their deeds to be seen by others; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long. They love to have the place of honor at banquets and the best seats in the synagogues, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, and to have people call them rabbi. But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all students. And call no one your father on earth, for you have one Father-the one in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted.'"
