A Jew does not believe alone; he or she believes with the community of Israel; and shares an insight of three thousand years of Jewish history. All generations are present in every generation. The community of Israel lives in every Jew. Every Jew, and the individual Jew, can survive only through intimate attachment to involvement in the community.
Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Insecurity of Freedom (via hjordis)(via vladislava)
In light of the recent tragedy of the death of the three young men, let us remember that Jews stand together, and so Jews stand strong. Am Yisrael chai!
