This is 5 days late but I wanted to share an amazing speech with you. 6 months before 9/11 I officiated at the wedding of Devora Wolk and Darrin Pontell - an officer in the Navy. 6 months later Darrin was stationed at the Pentagon and tragically his office was in the section that was hit by the plane. For the past 9 years Devora and her family have had to cope with mourning his death and do so at times publicly. It has been challenging and Devora agreed to share her thoughts with our congregation this past shabbat. Click here to read her speech. May Darrin's memory always be a source of blessing and comfort.
