I was asked to share with the Beth Tzedec community these words of gratitude from Thanaa and Amyn, the sister and brother-in-law of the Syrian family we are sponsoring.
We would really like to thank the entire Beth Tzedec Congregation along with JIAS for their heart-felt, overwhelming support in the reunification of our family, and giving hope and a better future for those less fortunate who have seen and experienced difficult situations.
In times like this, the Jewish community has chosen to build bridges and lend a hand, and have gone above and beyond what we could ever imagine. Words alone cannot express what this means to us and our family, and we will forever be grateful for the light that you have showed us.
"There are two ways of spreading the light; To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it" —Edith Wharton
