Rabbi’s Corner 
 I hope everyone enjoyed their Pesach holiday.The time goes by so quickly. It was nice to see somany guests who came through our shul over the en-tire week of Pesach. We missed many of you whowent away but trust that you enjoyed your time withfriends and family. Now that Pesach is over we are returning to amore normal schedule of classes that will take place ona weekly basis. Please refer to the bulletin for detailsand try to attend if you can. Most of the classes givenare not connected to one another week to week so evenif you have not been coming up until now or even if 
you don’t think you can make it every week it is still
worthwhile to try and attend. If you have other sug-gestions of classes you would enjoy please let meknow and I would be happy to try to accommodate
 people’s interests.
 This past Thursday was the actual date of YomHashoah. Something strange happened to me that Iwould like to share with you. After Torah reading onThursday morning in shul I said a few words aboutYom Hashoah and then recited the K-el MalehRachamim prayer in memory of the 6 million belovedJews who perished at the hands of the Nazis and their sympathizers. As I began the recitation the area of theroom where I was standing got darker. When I wasdone with the recitation I looked up and noticed thatthe center light on the candelabra at the front of theshul had gone out. I got chills up my spine. I gener-
ally don’t go about my day looking for signs from G
-d but there are times when the things that happen aroundus can give expression and insight to the feelings wehave inside. If I was unsure of how I was feeling dur-ing the K-el Maleh, the burnt light bulb helped me getthere. It reinforced to me just how significant the lossof any one individual can be. Even that loss of a smallamount of light affected the brightness of the room.Furthermore, when that light burnt out it was so final.It really made me realize in a very graphic way howfinal death can be, how final the death of 6 millionreally was, and how we can never go back and change

On behalf of the Board of the Young Israel of West Hartford we’d like to briefly clarify the intended use of 
the
 listserv.APPROPRIATE for posting to
 :· Local Community Events
 –
These include happenings at the Young Israel of West Hartford as well as else-where in the local community, of either Jewish or general interest.· Lifecycle announcements
 –
Births to deaths and everything in between. / Relocation to or from WestHartford. / General news about members of our community. (All responses should be directed to the one whomade the announcement and
not 
to the listserv in its entirety.)· Job Postings
 –
If you are aware of a job opening please consider positing it to the
 listserv.· Emergencies
 –
Such as hazardous weather warnings, or police matters, e.g. an All-Points Bulletin.· Services/items offered/wanted
 –
Posts pertaining to the offering/seeking of local goods and services areappropriate. Examples included asking for a recommendation for a plumber, seeking a ride to New York, oroffering items (ideally in exchange for a donation to our shul).INAPPROPRIATE for posting to
 :· Political Content
 –
Nothing political at all please. It
does not matter 
what the subject is, be it Jewish, Is-raeli, or American politics, satire or serious, such post are not suitable for the
 listserv.· Opinion
 –
The
listserv is not a forum for personal opinion or editorial commentary. The ex-ception would be speech about local issues, pertaining specifically to our particular community here.· National/International Information
 –
We all react to significant news with an instinct to share and dis-seminate. Nonetheless please keep in mind that the
listserv is reserved for local matters only; thismay seem counterintuitive at times, such as upon learning of a tragedy in Israel, G-d forbid. While passing onsuch critical information of vital interest is commendable
 –
an important and laudable task
 –
 
 isnonetheless not the appropriate forum. (National or international events that indicate a need for local height-
ened alert would fall into the “Emergencies” category.)
 · Chain Letters
 –
Regardless of content, including financial opportunities, health concerns, or religious mat-ters. Even if the matter is indeed of general interest,
 is still not the place to share it.· Divrei Torah
 –
All Torah learning is a beautiful thing, and more strength to you for engaging in the studythat binds us as a people, but the
listserv is designed for exclusively local content.As a general rule of thumb consider if the content is particularly locally relevant: A matter of general interestto the larger American/Jewish communities should be reserved for less specialized discussion forums, such astheJDWH Yahoo Group.Note also that the Young Israel of West Hartford will soon transition to a private email system for all official announcements, allowing those who wish to unsubscribe to
to do so withoutcontraindication.
Rabbi’s Corner, continued from Page 1.
 what happened. We are, instead, simply charged to remember it with reverence and pray and work so that it shallnever happen again.It is critically important that each of us attend the Yom Hashoah communal commemoration this Sunday atBeth El. It is important that we remember and it is important that we give a voice to survivors and give honor totheir lives. Lastly, it is important to be together as a community to feel the pain and devastation of the Holocaust.May our world be a better one devoid of such horrors and pain.Shabbat ShalomRabbi Weinberg
