We have the very unique privilege of a Guest Speaker for our upcoming Women Who Lunch & Learn of L.I. on January 7th. Rabbi Avraham Frank, Director of the Moment of Silence Project www.momentofsilence.info/ will share with us his successful campaign working toward the goal of implementing a moment of silence in our public schools for the last 10 years. He has been written up in Psychology Today by Izzy Kalman in the article A Moment of Silence: A Simple Way to Improve Schools and Society. The website for this extraordinary article is http://www.psychologytoday.com/topics. Rabbi Frank will share with us how a moment of silence can dramatically improve students' attitude towards life, academic performance, positive character traits and replace hostility with harmony and more. Please rsvp to Sora Fox firstname.lastname@example.org or Malka Kipnes email@example.com so we can reserve your seat.
We will meet Monday Jan. 7, 2013 at 11:30AM promptly

There is no one answer or reason for why the Connecticut School tragedy happened. But we owe it to ourselves, our children, and those children whose lives were snuffed out at Sandy Hook to explore each and every possibility. We need to stop looking for something or someone to blame, and start looking at what we can change. Because only through change do we truly honor the victims, and help prevent a tragedy of this sort from ever happening again. (an excerpt from writer Sara Esther Crispe, chabad.org)
Consider a Moment of Silence in the Public Schools!
May the families of those murdered in the Connecticut School Tragedy be comforted
